Newport ship closer to being identified

Researchers working on discovering information about the medieval ship found buried in the banks of the River Usk in Wales may be closer to identifying the ship. The 15th century ship is currently being cleaned and restored with money from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Newport City Council.

Two possible identities for the ship are the Marie de Bayonne or the Green Dragon according to Alan Smith, a member of the Friends of Newport Ship, who has been working on the project since 2002.
