Archaeologists working in Norfolk they have found medieval remains of a boat that could be 600 years old on the Chet River near Loddon. Originally it would have reached six meters in length and could have a sail.

It's about the first time a medieval ship is discovered in Norfolk, as reported by archaeologist Hather Wallis. "we think it dates from 1400 and 1600 AD. and it is very well preserved”, Says the expert, who thinks that it could have been used to transport materials and light products through the river.

A group of amateur archaeologists work in Northampton where excavate to extract remains of the medieval castle of the city. John Duthie, organizer of the excavation, said he has found a piece of stone from the castle, as well as oyster shells and ceramics that appear to be medieval. Now, professional archaeologists are in charge of analyzing these findings, which are very relevant considering the small size of the excavation.

Hobbyists excavate a square meter around the castle site, which was destroyed in the 9th century, in order to build a railway station.

The other items are quite rare. Accidentally, 14 coins from the Middle Ages were detected. "It is a once in a lifetime event. These coins have been in that place for more than 600 years”Acknowledged D. Edwards.

But an even greater discovery took place in a Surrey garage, when an auctioneer found a 19th-century grave. This millennium-old stone features Christian symbols and a Celtic cross with a halo and a sculpted geometric panel.

Guy Schwinge of the Duke auction house in Dorcehster reported to the Daily Mail that the grave was at the back of the garage, half hidden by cardboard boxes and garden tools. "To inexperienced eyes, the tomb may go unnoticed, but by carrying out a closer analysis of the engraved decoration and through detailed study, experts have been able to identify the object as an indicator of an Anglo-Saxon tomb, perhaps from the time of Alfred the Great”.

Finally, this stone has been auctioned for 4,300 pounds.

I am currently studying Journalism and Audiovisual Communication at the Rey Juan Carlos University, which has made me inclined towards the international section, including the study of languages. For this reason, I do not rule out teaching myself. I also like to practice physical exercise and spend a pleasant time chatting with my acquaintances and with new people. Finally, I enjoy traveling to know the authentic culture of each region of the world, although I admit that before I need to find out as much as possible about the place I'm going to visit, to fully enjoy the experience.
