The site of the Iron Age votive causeway at Fiskerton is one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe.
Alongside a wooden causeway leading to the edge of the River Witham, hundreds of objects have been excavated, deposited into the water as votive offerings to the Gods or ancestors.
Alongside many smaller tools and weapons, this entire log boat seems to have been made into an offering.
Still showing axe marks from its manufacture, the boat was probably only used once, to take it to the causeway where it was deliberately sunk.
The boat was made by hollowing out a single oak tree trunk, itself around 300 years old at the time it was chopped down.
Waterlogged when found, the boat underwent five years of treatment before it could be displayed in the archaeology gallery at The Collection.
