The Magor Pill Medieval Wreck
by Nigel Nayling
In 1994 the distorted timbers of a medieval boat came to light at Magor Pill, on the coast of the Gwent Levels, when storms washed away the sediments which had covered them since the boat ran aground about 700 years ago.
This report charts the complex and difficult excavation and recovery of the boat and its cargo of iron ore. The boat’s discovery emphasises the importance of creek ports both in the Severn estuary and beyond during the medieval period.
