The Ladby ship was found below a burial mound high in the terrain looking out over Kertinge Nor. All the woodwork in the vessel had rotted away, but the many iron rivets, which had held the ship’s planks together, still lay in place. On the basis of their distribution, and with the aid of traces of the rotten wood, it has been possible to reconstruct the original form and construction of the ship.
