Enthusiastic, am sharing information concerning a friend of mine's latest project, Icelandic Captain Gunnar Marel Eggertsson's new 'Iceland Knarr' Project. Gunnar will build a full sized replica of the 'Hedeby 3 Knarr' Viking merchant ship, discovered in the Hedeby Harbor in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany in 1980. Gunnar shall hand build his 'Iceland Knarr' with same materials and the Scandinavian clinker tradition (lapstrake), the same ancient Norse manner the 'Hedeby 3 Knarr' Viking merchant ship was constructed. Historically, Knarr ships were the largest cargo carrier merchant Viking ships. Knarr's were exceptionally sea-worthy, capable of traveling 75 miles (121 km) per day. Ancient Norse Knarr ships were built in Hedeby, an important Danish Viking Age trading area, during 8th to 11th centuries. Hedeby is located on the southern end of the Jutland Peninsula, known now as modern Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Iceland's history reveals Norse Knarr ships transported about 15,000 Norse settlers during 874-930, the 'Icelandic Age of Settlement.' Gunnar plans on building 'Iceland Knarr' in Hedeby, the historically important area of Viking Knarr shipbuilding. When Captain Gunnar Marel Eggertsson's 'Iceland Knarr ship is completed, he plans on sailing the historic journey from Hedeby to Iceland without any modern navigation tools. Gunnar will prove the Knarr's excellent sailing capabilities in difficult oceans. Gunnar an experienced Captain, sailed the Norwegian Gaia Viking ship for a 14 month journey 1991-92 from Norway, past Iceland to North America and down it's coast to South America's Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Gunnar Marel raised by a few generations of Shipwrights from his father's lineage has an extensive knowledge of Viking Ship history. He is a Master Ship Builder as well as a competent Viking ship builder. In 1996 he began building a replica of the 9th century Gokstad, a perfectly preserved Viking Ship in Gokstad near Sandefjord, Norway. The Gokstad ship was excavated from a Viking Burial mound. Gunnar used traditional Norse methods hand building his replica Gokstad Viking ship, naming his ship"Islendingur." When completed he proved its' sea worthiness, sailing it to and around the British Isles, back to Iceland. After which, Captain Gunnar Marel Eggertson sailed 'Islendingur' year 2000 along the same route from Iceland to North America, commemorating Leifur Eiriksson's historical journey, year 1,000. Gunnar's direct 33rd generation ancestor on his mother's lineage, Þjóðhildur Jörundardóttir was Leifur Eiriksson's mother. "Islendingur' is centrally exhibited in Vikingaheimer (Viking World) Museum in Iceland. Iceland honored Captain Gunnar Marel Eggertson with the "Order of Falcon," for his accomplishments with Viking ships. It is the highest, most revered Honor, Iceland can bestow. Iceland's history reveals Leifur Eiriksson would have sailed a Viking merchant Knarr Ship to North America, as Knarr merchant ships are deeper and wider than other Viking ships. Knarr's are able to carry a crew of 10-20 people, livestock and their goods. Knarr's were the Viking ship, important in the transportation of Norse people doing Iceland's settlement 874-930. Captain Gunnar Marel Eggertsson will echo Iceland's Settlement history after using ancient Norse methods building, then sailing without modern technology, the completed 'Iceland Knarr' from Hedeby to Iceland. Further information about Gunnar's Iceland Knarr project, his exceptional capabilities and accomplishments, please click link to his 'Iceland Knarr' website:

Swedish film festival prize features social distancing A film festival in Sweden has come up with a unique competition with social distancing as a prize. Gothenburg festival is transporting the winner, a nurse, to a small island, where she will get to watch this year's films in solitude in a lighthouse.
Please share, we need all the help we can get! Jafet J. Rytkonen was born in Finland in 1879 and came to Negaunee MI to work in the iron mines in 1902. However, he quickly changed professions and became an entrepreneur. He built the Historic Vista Theater/PAAC in 1925-1926. This theater is well loved by its small community of Negaunee, Iron Town USA. Many updates had been completed and many more were on the cusp of happening until Covid-19 shut everything down. After recent heavy rains the roof drains clogged causing water to pool, the massive weight of the standing water took down the entire roof over the auditorium. The theater has been a home for so many struggling for a place to belong. Producing plays, musicals, readings, pageants, fundraisers, both showing and making movies, youth productions, concerts, workshops, and much more! Even producing and performing a traveling adaptation of the Kalevala back in 2009! Please help save the building before the winter snow hits! Any amount is helpful, thank you for your time and support, it's appreciated more than you know!
