Two photos taken in Smallhythe, Kent, by Rysz Bartkowiak

From Trevor Brigham

The two photos were taken in Smallhythe, Kent, by Rysz Bartkowiak during the making of Time Team Episode 6, Series 6 (1999), where TT were looking for a 15th-century dock next to the River Rother, one of a number of episodes with MoLAS involvement. The first pic shows Damian Goodburn making a replica section of a clinker-built hull for the programme with the help of ancient tools (and no, I don't mean Phil Harding). The second shows Phil Harding and Tony Robinson (aka Baldric) testing the completed hull section for watertightness, using a hosepipe. I recall it worked, but Baldric's aim wasn't so good...surely a peak moment in experimental archaeology. Rysz assisted Damian with his carpentry and kindly passed me the photos shortly afterwards.
