- There were several beds found at Oseberg and Gokstad. The most famous
from Oseberg is the "Great Bed" reconstructed in Plate 7. So just for
you Jim <grin>, I have spent the last several hours restoring and
uploading Plate 7. I'll do the other bed drawings and English summary
pages as I have time.
Other beds have been found elsewhere. Probably the best
archaeological report showing a variety of beds is
Speake, G. A Saxon Bed Burial on Swallowcliffe Down. Historic
Buildings and Monuments Commission, no. 10. London: Historic
Buildings & Monuments Commission for England, 1989. ISBN:1850742111

- I have built a simple webpage to index the images and English summary
of the Oseberg archaeology reports as I finish image restoration and
upload. This is a work in progress and will take a bit to complete.
Hope that this helps.
