In Norway there are three major, important Viking findings. The Oseberg ship (Osebergskipet) from Tønsberg, Gokstad ship (Gokstadskipet) from Sandefjord Borge and the Borre burial mounds (Borrehaugene) in Horten.
The center is located with a great view towards the Borre mounds. They are northern Europe’s largest collection of monumental burial mounds from the Merovingian and Viking eras. The burial mounds in the Borre park are mentioned in “Snorre saga”, who claimed that kings were buried here!
