The Oseberg ship is the most famous Viking finding all over the world. It was discovered in Norway along with numerous grave goods and carved animal heads which all are displayed in Viking Ship Musuem of Oslo, Norway.
Vikings used a variety of beast carvings on their warships. The most common were dragons and serpents carried on the prow of the ship. These carvings believed to provide protection on the ship and the crew by the sea monsters. It is also known that these carvings were used to strike fear on the enemies and giving the advantage on the Vikings to prevail in battle.
