This Bronze Age boat was discovered by E. V. Wright in 1963 in
the intertidal zone of the River Humber at North Ferriby, East
The boat is C14 dated to about 1300 BC.
The remains comprise parts of two incomplete oak (Quercus) planks
that originally lay to one side of a 'keel-strake' which was not
found. There was evidence of the boat being broken up by axe.
The bottom strake was 7.7m long, and the lowest strake of the
side was 5.67m long. The planks were attached to each other by
stitches of withies, and the seam was caulked with moss held down
by laths of wood. No trace of any cleats existed, and the spacing
of the stitch holes was such that this could not have been part
of North Ferriby Boat 2.
