Remains of a wooden shipwreck excavated and recovered from an old river bed in Czersk (Poland). Timbers used for construction came from trees felled between AD 1478 – 1481. According to reconstruction maximum length of the vessel could reach nearly 32m. Its maximum width is estimated to 7 – 8m and height to 1,45m. With its own weight of about 35 tons, the vessel could carry up to 90 tons of cargo. Pairs of holes found on the midship floor timbers may have been a trace of the mast fastening. Other holes closer to the aft are possible location of the aft cabin, placed under the half-deck.
Presented model is the result of structured light scanning performed on every single element of the shipwreck.
