A 500-year-old medieval ship has been raised from a riverbed in the Netherlands.
A team of construction workers found the vessel. It measures approximately 20 metres by eight, and weighs about 40 tonnes.
It is thought to have been a trading vessel used to sail the North and Baltic Seas.
They had been digging up the port in Kampen when they made the discovery.
Archaeologists used a specially made metal frame and straps to act as a harness so that they could pull the boat out of the water.
It’s really rare to find a medieval boat so well preserved. It even has a brick-arched oven and glazed tiles intact on the rear deck!
Once restored it will always be kept wet to ensure it remains preserved.
