Viking Time

During the Viking time around 1000 AD the people of Roskilde decided to sink a number of their Skuldelev in the fjord in order to prevent the Vikings from coming in and raiding. Originally it was thought there were only five of them, later they discovered a total of 14. This plan worked too well as no one was able to enter the fjord and thus trade declined to the city and so did the population.
