As part of the presentation of the ship finds from the harbour at Hedeby, elements of ship's equipment counted among the find material from the excavations in Hedeby andSchleswig were published. Finds of bone, horn and antler, however, were not taken intoconsideration as potential pieces of ship’s equipment. An object – now lost – made fromthe antler of a red deer and found in the settlement excavation of Hedeby could be identified as an oarlock. Among the material from medieval Schleswig was an object made fromthe tooth of a sperm whale, which must be characterised as a vaðbeinand was used indeep-sea fishing with draglines. Parallels for these objects, rare in southern Scandinavia,point to western Norway and the North Atlantic.
