Where we are with the project

The Newport Ship has been an amazing find for Newport and as the only example of a ship of her type has helped archaeologist to plug gaps in their knowledge on how ships were built in Northern Europe during the 15th century.

Over the last 15 years the Newport Ship has been cleaned, recorded and is in the process of going through conservation works which we hope will be completed towards the end of 2015. From the dedication as well as generosity of time and money on the part of our volunteers and the project team we have regular open days where the public can come and see why the Newport Ship is important and unique and how they can help the project move forward towards bringing the Ship to life, rebuilt and on display in Newport.
