The Drakkar was a type of Viking longship used by the Norsemen during the Viking Age, which lasted from the 8th to the 11th centuries. The term "Drakkar" comes from the Old Norse word "dreki," which means dragon or sea serpent, and refers to the ornate dragon head and tail that adorned the bow and stern of the ship.
The Drakkar was a type of warship that was designed to be fast and manoeuvrable, with a shallow draft that allowed it to navigate shallow waters and make beach landings. It was also equipped with oars and a square sail, which gave it a great deal of flexibility in terms of speed and manoeuvrability.
Drakkars were used for a variety of purposes, including raiding, trading, exploration, and transportation of people and goods. They were an important part of Viking culture, and were often adorned with intricate carvings and decorations that reflected the wealth and status of their owners.
Today, replicas of Drakkar Viking ships can be found in museums.
