Building a Sailing replica of William the Conquerors Flag Ship

Replicating old sailing ships is not new. Think of Tim Severin sailing his replica Welsh Leather hulled boat across the Atlantic and later on his Arab Dhow from the Gulf to China. Then we have the Greek city of Volos building a replica of Jason and the Argonauts ship and sailing this in the Western Mediterranean. Australia has featured highly in this genre with the replica of Cooks ship the Endeavour.

The region of Normandy has such a themed venture underway. They are building a working replica of William the Conqueror’s flagship. You can visit this new project in association with your visit to the Bateaux Tapestry.
