Bibendum
Like people of other civilisations, the Vikings believed that this life continued into an afterlife. For this reason they buried their dead among the objects that would ensure a transition between the two worlds: jewels, clothing, weapons... For the richest, servants were sacrificed with their masters. It was in this way that the funerary ships were found when they were unearthed from their burial mounds at the end of 19C, providing traces of maritime techniques, more tangible than Viking myth.
