A replica Bronze Age boat that made history last month when it was the first of its kind to be launched for nearly 4,000 years took to water again this weekend for additional sea trials.

Morgawr, as she is known, is a 50ft long handstitched wooden boat that weighs nearly five tonnes.

A team of volunteers, led by shipwright Brian Cumby, spent the last year building this unique craft out of two massive oak logs using replica methods and tools, such as bronze headed axes.

The Bronze Age boat project was a joint project between the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth and the University of Exeter.

It marks a first for experimental archaeology.
