It is the end of the investigation week but there is still a long way to go till we discover the age of the boat under the car park.
The ‘dig’ was carried out by a team from Wirral Archaeology CIC working in partnership with the pub owners, Greene King. Work was performed under the supervision of professional archaeologist, Charles Jones, who has spent many years researching the site of the Battle of Fulford (1066), and scientist Professor Stephen Harding of Nottingham University.
The investigation was not a ‘dig’ as we would traditionally understand it but an investigation using a series of specially drilled holes to try to obtain wood samples from the ship in order to analyse and try to ascertain its age.
