Viking longships were fast and could sail in shallow water. This gave the Vikings the possibility to travel up rivers as well as across the sea. In a raid, a ship could be hauled up on a beach. To surprise your enemy was an important strategic military tactic that gave the Vikings several advantages. The Vikings could jump out and start fighting, and then make a quick getaway if they were chased.

Many Viking ships were equipped with a dragon head on the bow. The dragon was one of the most famous symbols of the Vikings. Vikings believed the dragon could protect them against evil spirits at sea.
