The Ladby Dragon launched for a new season

18. June 2018 | Vikingemuseet Ladby

The Ladby Dragon was launched along with a demonstration of Viking fighting and special holiday buns.

The reconstructed Ladby Ship, the Ladby Dragon, is once more floating in her right element after being launched on the eve of All Prayers Day.

Several hundred people attended this year’s launching of the Ladby Dragon at the Viking Museum at Ladby on Thursday, April 26. There was plenty to see, do and taste! There were rides on Icelandic horses, and a chance to watch Palna Thoke’s Free Men’s battle show, eat warm Prayer Day buns with butter, cast a spear and shoot an arrow.

The above photos were taken by Emil Andreasen.
