Show report: Newport Ship Open Day – October 2016

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.
