In 834 C.E. two significant women died, and were honoured with a magnificent burial. The Oseberg ship was pulled ashore and used as a burial ship. A burial chamber was constructed immediately behind the ship’s mast. Inside, the walls were decorated with a fantastic woven tapestry, and the dead women were laid on a bed made up with bed linen. They were accompanied by a lavish array of textiles designed for a range of uses.

The ship is housed in Norway’s Viking Ship Museum currently being rebuilt and will re-open to the public in 2026.
