The National Museum of Denmark along with thousands of volunteers has completed the construction of the world's longest Viking Age bridge, which is a recreation of the original Ravningbroen near Jelling from 980 CE.
The 700-metre oak bridge is located by a small recreated Viking Age village near the Copenhagen suburb of Albertslund, connecting a reconstructed Viking Age village (Vikingelandsbyen i Albertslund) with an archaeological Viking Age grave site, Snubbekorsgård Gravplads.
Crossing over open meadows, the wooden bridge was constructed mainly using original methods and tools with the help of three full-time carpenters and thousands of volunteers from local schools. Only 25 percent of the construction used modern methods.
