MONUMENT NO. 441056

DESCRIPTION + /

A length of worked tree trunk, taken to be the remains of a dugout canoe, were found embedded in the undisturbed subsoil of a submarine forest at Thurlestone Sands, uncovered in 1923 (the forest had previously been noted in 1866: see 1507945). The logboat was thought to be later Prehistoric, by its association with the forest and with the other artefacts found at the site, including part of a Mesolithic tranchet axe and perforated pebble macehead and a few other, more doubtful, stone artefacts. The logboat is no longer extant.
