This boat timber was found by Kieran Gillingham whilst working for the Enviroment Agency. The boats frame was found in Keyhaven, near the hurst castle ferry terminal. Kieran brought the frame to the attention of Citizan and Southampton University knowing it was likely something signifficant.
The timber frame clearly demonstrates a ship construction technique known as lapstrake or clinker in which the planking of the hull overlap. The cuts on the Outboards Face of the frame clearly demonstrate this construction technique which is usually associated with very early vessels.
Despite a site visit from Citizan staff to the location there was no clear site that the frame could have come from and it likely washed in on the tide to where it was recovered.
The timber was stored wet by Kieran under the advice of Southampton, it was later recorded by Citizan archaeologists and taken to Southampton University for Further Study to be used as a teaching example for there Martime archaeology course.
