RK17 A00089 Knife handle 3D Model
RK17 A00089 is one of the wooden knife handles found during the archaeological excavation of the Rooswijk in 2017.
In 2016 Dutch and British archaeologists undertook a survey on the site of the Dutch East Indiaman Rooswijk which showed it was at high risk. To address this a team has come together from Historic England and the Dutch Cultural Heritage Agency (RCE) to undertake an archaeological excavation in summer 2017.
