An amazing project to reconstruct an ancient boat, carried out using Bronze Age axeheads and prehistoric techniques in Cornwall, could see the vessel launch this week.

 

A team of history experts and boatbuilding volunteers will be praying to the prehistoric gods for good weather this week, when a recreation of a 4,000-year-old boat – constructed without nails and sewn together using yew withies – will be launched from Falmouth Harbour in Cornwall.
