The Mysteries of the Medieval Ship

About the Show

It's an amazing detective story that started with the discovery of the remains of a medieval ship on the banks of a Welsh river in 2002. Fragments of medieval vessels have been found in Britain before, but what makes this find unique is the ship's excellent state of preservation. It is the only vessel of its date and kind to have been found intact in Europe. Joining the archaeologists in the race to raise and preserve this exciting find, this programme travels back in time to a turbulent world of piracy and civil war, as the intriguing secrets of the mysterious vessel are revealed.
