Event Description
John Kincheloe presents, Sailing the Draken Harald Harfagre: Recreating the Viking's Maritime Legacy

  For the last four years a project has been underway to investigate ancient Norse sailing traditions by constructing and sailing of the world’s largest Viking ship built in the modern era. John Kincheloe, a history professor at Loudoun campus, spent the summer of 2013 as a crew member on the Draken Harald Harfagre, sailing the coast of Norway. His goal was to develop an understanding of the Viking age and its maritime legacy. In the process, he experienced firsthand the challenges of historically recreating a method of sailing and way of life that has not existed in over 900 years. John Kincheloe will speak on both the Viking Maritime Legacy and his experience “Taming the Dragon."
