So who else is going? I'd like to meet a few other vikings while I'm here. (I know that I've only been to a few functions but that is more due to work than anything else.)

This sounds like a truly great lecture as well and I'm hoping to add some more information to my research to better my understanding.

I thought this might be of interest to some of our folks:

January 20th, 6:30p. $17 for non-members.


Voyages of the Dragons from the North

Terrorizing coastlines, dominating rivers and exploring the oceans,
the Vikings achieved remarkable feats in open ships with a single sail
and a few oars. Dramatic finds, along with the reconstruction and
ocean trials of Viking ships, prove the skill of these seafaring
adventurers who ranged from
 Constantinople to Newfoundland. Sail with
us as we recreate their journeys.

Louise Kempe Henriksen is curator at the The Viking Ship Museum in
Roskilde, Denmark, the foremost Viking ship museum in Denmark.
Henriksen was a member of the crew of the Seastallion, a replica of a
Viking ship found at Roskilde Fjord. The crew embarked on a six-week
journey to Dublin, Ireland from their home port of Roskilde, Denmark
during the summer of 2008.

Cosponsored by Archaeological Institute of America - Houston Society
and the Danish Consulate of Houston. This lecture is generously
underwritten by SCAN-TRANS, INC.
