RUC Roskilde University Centre

The cathedral is the burial place of kings and queens and had a rich treasury.

Pirates were a problem so 5 old viking ships were filled with stones and sunk in the fjord to make the channel more difficult

One turned up to be made of IRISH oak

When the 5 were raised it led to the museum and the building of fullsize copies
