Viking ship 'buried beneath pub'


A 1,000-year-old Viking longship is thought to have been discovered under a pub car park on Merseyside.

The vessel is believed to lie beneath 6ft to 10ft (2m to 3m) of clay by the Railway Inn in Meols, Wirral, where Vikings are known to have settled.

Experts believe the ship could be one of Britain's most significant archaeological finds.

...1000 years ago at the pub: "o.k. do we get a taxi, or get the oars out and row back?..."
