Medieval boat uncovered
ARCHAEOLOGISTS working on the north Suffolk coast have unearthed an early medieval boat.

Excavations being carried out in Sizewell in advance of the onshore works for the Greater Gabbard Wind Farm unearthed the remains of the craft.

The boat, which was probably a small inshore fishing vessel, had been broken up some time between the 12th and 14th Centuries and parts of the hull re-used to create a timber lining for a well, experts said.
