This oak keelson (2783x1) was found washed up on the northern shore of the island of Sejerø, off Zealand, Denmark. Typologically, it dates to the high/late middle ages or early modern period. The keelson is an inboard, longitudinal member reinforcing the ship longitudinally and distributing the forces from the mast, set in an integrated rectangular mast step, over a larger area of the ship’s bottom. We do not know where this keelson came from, but it is relatively well preserved, suggesting that it has not drifted around for long. Is there a medieval or early modern wreck lying exposed to the elements off Sejerø..?
L. 324cm, W: 21cm, H: 12-16cm. (Mast step: 28x11x4,5cm). (Model created in Agisoft PhotoScan; photographed in one single setup. Can you find the patches where the keelson was supported during the photo session..?)
