    Although of interest, this is not new, it is an extract from an article that is over 10 years old, and only records information interpreted by a journalist. By contrast I note that Rikke Johansen, ‘The Viking Ships of Roskilde’ in Sailing into the past: Learning from Replica Ships, ed by Jenny Bennett (Seaforth Publishing, 2009), provides solid performance data, but does not make the same claims.
