Matt Pope on BBC Radio 4's Making History
2 July 2014
The discoveries, first made by Captain Trevor Northage, were investigated by a team from Ireland's Underwater Archaeology Unit led by Karl Brady. The boats included everything from a Bronze Age wooden vessel, a Medieval log boat and a Victorian paddle steamer.
As Matt Pope indicated:
- "It was a privilege to be able to report on these exceptional finds for Radio 4, and to see how professional archaeologists are working closely with Captain Northage to document this archive of boat-building heritage stretching back 3,500 years."
