King Eystein built a large ship at Nidaros, which, in size and shape, was like the Long Serpent which King Olaf Trygvason had built. At the stem there was a dragon's head, and at the stern a crooked tail, and both were gilded over. http://arkeologi.blogspot.co.uk/2005/01/boat-houses-in-north-atlantic.html
