Exploring History: Viking Navigation
July 1 @ 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.$14.00
No sunstone, a mythical tool that guided Viking seafaring, has ever been found on or near a Viking shipwreck, causing most historians to dismiss the idea of the sunstone as fiction. But others believe it’s possible that these crystals did guide Viking voyages. Learn more about sunstones and Viking navigation, seafaring, and shipbuilding with the Legacy of the Lakes Museum.
