Medieval News: Medieval Anglo-Saxon boat discovered in Norfolk.

The remains of a boat which could be more than 600 years old has been discovered by a team excavating a new drainage dyke in Norfolk.

The oak timber remnants, dated circa 1400, were found near Loddon during work on the Broadland Flood Alleviation Project (BFAP) along the River Chet.

Archaeologist Heather Wallis said: “No boats of this date have previously been found in Norfolk.”
