Longboats were swift and maneuverable vessels used by Scandinavian warriors known as Vikings for raiding, trading, and exploration. These boats allowed the Vikings to travel long distances, navigate through shallow waters, and surprise their enemies with sudden attacks. Longboats were an essential part of Viking warfare and played a key role in their expansion and influence throughout Europe during the Viking Age.
