Noble Friends, Especially Nautical Types:
I have in the past reported here about the Newport Medieval Ship. To
recap, this 15th century clinker-built cog was discovered buried in the
mud at Newport in Wales in 2002. The vessel is claimed to be the largest
and most complete 15th century ship to survive. It has been undergoing
preservation since its discovery. You can read about the Newport
Medieval Ship here on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newport_Ship .
Recently I stumbled across the web site for Friends of the Newport Ship
which contains a lot of other good stuff about the Ship, particularly
the pages under "The Ship" on the menu bar. You can reach their site
with http://newportship.org/ . Do take note of the particularly nice
painting of how the Newport Ship may have looked, though it shows only
one mast (it likely had two or three according to the text).
If that isn't enough (can we ever get too much history?), here is a link
to a 2012 BBC news video clip about the Newport Medieval Ship and its
preservation efforts: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-17708611 .
