Cardiff Castle Garrison were thrilled to return to the Newport Ship for another open day. The charity are continuing to preserve the fifteenth-century timbers of the ship found in the River Usk in 2002, and hope to finish this process over the next year. They then plan to display the ship in a purpose-built museum.
Garrison gave several displays including medieval musical instruments, clothing, crafts, weapons, armour and food.
We were very pleased to be invited back to work with the Newport Ship again and are very much looking forward to seeing its conservation completed!
