A few of the Royal Foresters Guild in Endewearde have filmed a period watercraft piece. We illustrate the use of a dugout canoe and a pair of coracles. Maneuvering the vessels, fishing an eel pot, and pair net trawling are all shown. These watercraft could definitely have met up in a situation like this in England, Ireland, and much of Western & Northern Europe during the early Medieval period. We have represented an Irish kern, 2 Norse & and a wandering Welshman, an unlikely lot! We hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed making this!
