The content of the film is about the history of the grave finds in Rundehogjen where one found the burned remains of one of the world’s largest Viking ships. One looks at the finds from the grave and tries to understand what they can tell us. Who was the man in the grave? How did he live and die?


The film was made by Arkikon in 2010, but has been updated and cut to a family-friendly version that is suitable to be shown throughout the opening hours at Sagastad. The screening time for the film is just under 20 minutes.
