Le drakkar d’Hérouville-Saint-Clair, hommage à nos ancêtres les Vikings.

 

Le drakkar, célèbre embarcation viking a largement contribué aux différentes invasions, du VIII au XI siècle, de ces peuples venus du nord de l’Europe et qui ont donné son nom à la Normandie.

« Drakkar » vient du mot viking « Dreki » qui signifie « Dragon »

La poupe et la proue de ces navires, se déplaçant indifféremment à la voile ou à l’aviron, étaient souvent décorées d’une tête de dragon censée protéger ces excellents navigateurs des tempêtes et des grosses vagues.

 

Si les drakkars et la civilisation viking vous intéressent, visitez ce site qui retrace la construction du « Dreknor », ce navire fait régulièrement escale dans les différents ports de la région.
