About Newport Medieval Ship

Come and see this marvellous project as conservation continues of the 15th Century vessel, found on the banks of the River Usk just 13 years ago. Hear the story of the excavation of the remains; see the conservation process and some of the 550 year old timbers and precious artefacts.
The Newport Medieval Ship was discovered in the banks of the River Usk in June 2002 during construction of the Riverfront Theatre. Newport City Council, a team of specialists are now recording and conserving all 1700 ship timbers and the artefacts discovered during the excavation.

The work is uncovering new and exciting information about the ship which will inform much more about the ship, including its original size and shape, where it was built, the different parts of the world it sailed to, and what its cargo was.
