Bronze Age Boat Building

Academics from the University of Essex in England set out to recreate a Bonze Age stitched boat from oak and yew withies using traditional tools. As the little preamble in the video states, the design is based on 3 vessels discovered between 1937 and 1963 at North Ferriby on the Humber Foreshore. It’s being built at the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, Cornwall, by Brian Cumby and many volunteers (3:15. Hello!) and will hopefully be launched in early March. 

And this appears to be episode 1 again, but is a quick recap of the whole thing and the follow on from episode 7 starting at about the 3:00, 3:30 mark.
