There were two distinct construction methods for wooden ships, the
Scandinavian and the Mediterranean. At first glance the Anglo-Saxon ship is
purely a Scandinavian craft, but all may not be as it seems. To fully
understand, one needs an understanding of the outline evolution of the
Scandinavian tradition as found from the earliest Swedish rock carvings,
through to the Norman invasion. This illustrated talk will cover that period
and raise the issue of why the Woodbridge reconstruction may have some
‘Mediterranean’ in its genes.
