Maesglas Industrial Estate-Unit 22 Newport Newport_County Wales
The Newport Medieval Ship was discovered in the banks of the River Usk in June 2002 during construction of the Riverfront Theatre. The ship was excavated by a team of archaeologists and lifted from the ground timber by timber. Supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, an international team of specialists is now cleaning and recording all 1700 ship timbers. The work is uncovering new and exciting information about the ship. Through this work we will learn 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.
