Event description

Description

We will be spending a couple of days recording the remains of some of the vessels at Turf Lock at the confluence of the River Exe and the Exeter Canal. We will be looking at the remains of two vessels, one of which is a barge and the other is a possible lugger/fishing boat. Our aim for the two days will be to complete a baseline survey of each vessel which will then be deposited with the Devon Historic Environment Record.

At the end of the two days you will have a good understanding of the typical vessels which can be found along the foreshore in the area, understand their construction and how to tell the difference between the two. You will also understand the principles of archaeological survey and contributed significantly to the construction of the baseline plan.
