Abstract:
Reports on the excavation and subsequent analysis of the remains of a thirteenth-century boat found on the Gwent levels in 1994 (see also 98/1258.). Remnants were also found of a cargo of iron ore, which lay on top of a wattle hurdle inside the boat. An account of the methods used for the boat's `Recovery' is given by Diane Dollery & Nigel Nayling (20--4). The associated environmental evidence is examined in `Palaeobotanical evidence' by Astrid Castledine & Kate Barrow (28--38) and `Diatom analysis of sediments and caulking material' by Nigel Cameron & Simon Dobinson (38--40). Finds reports comprise `Roman pottery' by Peter Webster (41), `Medieval pottery' by Mark Redknap (41--4), and `Animal bone' by Martin Locock (44). The vessel and its cargo are examined in detail in `The boat' by Richard Brunning, Nigel Nayling & Adam Yates (45--111). This section covers the origin of the timbers construction, treenails and iron fastenings, and toolmarks, with a `Report on the caulking fibres' by Michael Ryder (55--7); contributions on the contents include `The hurdle' by Rowena Gale (103--5), and `The cargo: iron ore analysis' by Tim Young & Gary Thomas (105--11). `The iron industry of south-east Wales in the 13th century' is discussed by Mark Redknap & Tim Young (112--15). Dendrochronology of the boat's original timbers suggests a felling date of AD 1239/40, and this is supported in `Beech dendrochronology' by Ian Tyers (123--8). `Reconstructing the Magor Pill boat' by Mark Redknap (129--42) incorporates `Building a full-size model' by Mark Redknap & Edwin Gifford (137--42). `The historical and archaeological significance of the Magor Pill boat' is considered also by Mark Redknap (143--54). The `Conservation strategy' is discussed by Diane Dollery (155--6) and proposals for the `Display' of the find are outlined by Mark Redknap (157).
