“The Viking ships were decorated with the most beautiful wooden carvings: Dragon heads and flowers, ornaments and animals adorned Leiv Eiriksson’s ship – as he fought his way through the waves towards Newfoundland, where he first set foot. Today, a 1000 years later – we continue the tradition – and decorate a proud ship – sailing on our oceans on a much more peaceful mission than back in the early Viking age!
I never knew of that Viking custom. Is there any reconstruction of those carvings?

Yes, there is (I've seen them myself).

Go to this site for information and photos:
The Viking Ship Museum - Museum of Cultural History - Oslo

Here are the Wikipedia sites of the Oseberg and Gokstad Viking Ships (which you also can read about in the above link):

As one can see in post 19 and 20, the King presented the Kong Olav V's Cancer Research Award at the University of Oslo yesterday, April 16.

Here is an Royal Central article about it:
King Harald handed out King Olav Vs Cancer Research Prize 2018 – Royal Central

And in the evening, he visited Oslo Military Society.

Well, it's not that easy to stay on your feet when you're 81-years-old and a bit frail:

Thanks iceflower!

That was from his visit to Gjesdal, here is the Royal House article from the visit to Bjerkreim:

As you can see from the photos, HM was in great spirits - and the press was out in force.

Here are two articles from yesterday's visit:

King Harald visits Gjesdal and Bjerkreim – Royal Central
Quote:
King Harald of Norway has a personal goal to visit all the municipalities in Norway. Yesterday, His Majesty visited two towns that he has never been to on an official visit. This happened the day after he handed out a cancer research award in memory of his father, King Olav. Yesterday the journey went to Gjesdal and Bjerkreim, in western Norway.

The visit started in Gjesdal, and when the King arrived at the local school, he was met with flags and songs. At the front of the choir were the two siblings, Lise and Tobias Vølstad. Those two had written a letter to King Harald and invited him to Gjesdal. When the children had finished their songs, the King was welcomed by Mayor Frode Fjeldsbø and Principal Trond Niemi at the Gjesdal Youth School.

The King’s commitment to children and youth’s upbringing environment was the focus during the visit to this municipality, which has the country’s youngest population. Here he heard from the children on how it was to grow up in Gjesdal.
King Harald making the rounds in Rogaland - Norway Today
Quote:
Gjesdal and Bjerkreim received a visit from King Harald on Tuesday for the first time since his time on the throne. Despite gray weather, the king was in a great mood.

The royal couple arrived at the Gjesdal Youth School, Tuesday morning, where King Harald was received by the rector Trond Niemi, Gjesdal city major, Frode Fjeldsbø (Ap), county governor Magnhild Meltveit Kleppa and pupils from all over the municipality. Through a varied cultural program at the school, the king gained insight into the everyday life of the locals, which is what he appreciates the most when traveling around Norway.
HM visited alone, so this is an error from Norway Today.

See my above post for more information and photos.

Thanks iceflower!

Watch the whole ceremony here: Kongen markerer frigjøringsdagen – NRK

Royal Central article: King Harald marked the day of liberation – Royal Central
Quote:
On Tuesday, His Majesty King Harald of Norway participated in the events in memory of the Liberation Day and the National Veterans Day at Akershus fortress in Oslo.

Every year, 8 May is a day where Norway honours all veterans, from World War II and up to today’s international operations while they mark the liberation from the German occupation in 1945.

The Norwegian Royal Family has long traditions to participate at these events, as they themselves were directly affected during the war and had to live in exile for five years.
--------------------

As one can see from 04:40 in the NRK video above, HM walked very well, despite his foot problems.

King Harald has a number of engagements in connection with the Abel Prize 2018 today, May 22 (the Abel Prize honours outstanding scientific work in the field of mathematics). First King Harald received this year's winner Canadian Professor Robert P. Langlands for an audience, then he attended the presentation of the Abel Prize 2018 at the University Hall in Oslo and this evening he will be present at the Government's banquet in honour of the Abel Prize Laureate:
