The substantial remains of this well-preserved Romano-Celtic boat were discovered during survey work in advance of construction at this former agricultural site in the Gwent Levels in south-east Wales. The boat was recorded in situ, and then dismantled and recovered for detailed recording prior to conservation. This research report covers the detailed excavation evidence, an examination of the environmental context, theoretical reconstructions, methods of dating and conservation, and general conclusions about the contribution made by this crucial find to understanding of Romano-British technology and shipbuilding, as well as networks of transport, commerce and communication.
