The French production company ZED is making a documentary about the Gjellestad ship. Over the next weeks we are therefore going to be getting a few visits from the director of the documentary, Pierre Stine.

Just last week he visited the excavation to get shots of the work we are doing, the methods we are using, and, last but not least, the ship itself. This resulted in the beautiful drone pictures above and below:
