    Further to my last message. I’ve just logged on to the museum website. If you go to the English version and then trawl down there is a feature entitled ‘200 year old oak to be cleaved at the Viking Ship Museum’ This dates from September and the ‘log’ in question is 8m long and they are just using hammers and wedges, etc.to split the oak trunk. As always. Alistair
