Discovery of the Bronze Age Boats

Clip: Season 16 Episode 1 | 3m 38s | Video has closed captioning.

The Must Farm site sits in a landscape crisscrossed by a network of waterways. One of the big questions the team wants to answer is whether European Bronze Age villages like this were isolated — or if they had contact with the wider world. The archaeologists discovered eight pristine log boats suggesting these villagers were travelers.
