Dr. Ole Crumlin-Pedersen, founder of the Viking Ship Museum, has passed away
We are sad to report that Dr. Ole Crumlin-Pedersen, Viking Ship Museum, passed away after a long period of illness, at 76. Some of you remember how Ole helped host the Silkeborg, Denmark WARP international conference in 1996. He gave a brilliant tour of the Viking Ship Museum exhibits (below) and facilities, and we were able to appreciate the amazing work involved in recovering, preserving and displaying Viking vessels by Dr. Crumlin-Pedersen and his team. He will be greatly missed as a WARP Associate.
