Viking clinker hull ships, also known as Viking clinker-built ships, were a type of boat used by the Vikings during the Viking Age (793-1066 AD).
These ships were constructed by overlapping thin planks of wood on top of each other and fastening them together with iron nails or rivets. This method of construction, known as "clinker" or "lapstrake," made the hulls of the ships strong and flexible, able to withstand rough seas and navigate shallow waters.
The Viking clinker-built ships came in different sizes and shapes, ranging from small rowboats to large warships known as longships. The longships were particularly important in Viking warfare and raiding, as they were fast, agile, and able to navigate both open seas and rivers.
The design of the Viking clinker-built ships allowed them to be easily repaired and maintained, making them ideal for long sea journeys and exploration. They were also used for trade and transportation of goods and people, playing a crucial role in the development of Viking culture and civilization.
