wood and iron, h 25.4cm × l 97cm × w 33.6cm Catalogue entry

In 1822 the remains of a ship and an anchor were unearthed at Capelle in the province of Noord Brabant. The single-masted vessel had been deployed during the siege of the nearby town of Geertruidenberg in 1593. This was the first archaeological excavation of a ship in the Netherlands. This model is a reconstruction of the vessel. Quite remarkably, it was made of wood recovered from the excavated ship.
