9 medieval ships found in Oslo

The largest collection of antique shipwrecks ever found in Norway has been discovered under mud at the building site for a new highway tunnel in Oslo.  Archaeologist Jostein Gundersen said at least nine wooden boats, the largest of which is 17 meters, or 56 feet, long were found well preserved nearly 400 years after they sank at Bjoervika.
