Ancient Viking Ships To Move To Museum on Oslo Waterfront

The University of Oslo decided Wednesday to move Norway's famed Viking ships to a new museum to be built on Oslo's redeveloped waterfront.

The relocation is planned even though there are fears the move could damage the ancient wooden vessels, Oslo's Aftenposten newspaper reports.

The ships, dating from the eighth to 11th centuries, are to move to the new Museum of Cultural History planned for Bjorvika harbor, where the city's new Opera House is set to open in 2008.
