Two photos taken in Smallhythe, Kent, by Rysz Bartkowiak during the making of Time Team Episode 6, Series 6 (1999), where Time Team were looking for a 15th-century dock next to the River Rother, one of a number of episodes with MoLAS involvement.

Rysz assisted Damian with his carpentry and kindly passed me the photos shortly afterwards.

Phil Harding and Tony Robinson

Phil Harding and Tony Robinson (aka Baldric) testing the completed hull section for watertightness, using a hosepipe. I recall it worked, but Baldric's aim wasn't so good...surely a peak moment in experimental archaeology.
