Description

This dug out canoe, hewn from a single trunk of oak using axes, chisels and gouges, has been radiocarbon dated to about 800AD. It was discovered in 1925 by Tom Jenkins on the floor of Llangorse Lake, near Brecon. It was almost certainly used by people living on the crannog, the artficial island settlement on the lake which is the only one of its kind known outside Scotland and Ireland.
