Ten years on - restoration of Newport's medieval ship continues

It captured the imagination of Newport when it was found and sparked a campaign that attracted the support of thousands of people.

Ten years on from the discovery of the city’s medieval ship DAVID DEANS investigates progress to conserve it.

IT has been a decade since it was discovered on a bank of the Usk – but a team of specialists are still continuing the work to preserve and eventually rebuild the Newport Medieval Ship.

The shop was found at the building site for the Newport Riverfront Theatre in 2002 and was excavated following a campaign that saw protesters holding a 24-hour vigil and thousands signing petitions.
