Scale model of medieval Newport.
Commissioned by The Friends of the Newport ship this 1-200 scale model of medieval Newport is on display on the University of Wales building on the river front in Newport.
Inspired by the depiction of medieval Newport by Illustrator Anne Lever and working with historian Bob Trett this is the best conjectural interpretation of Newport in the medieval period and shows the huge hulk of the Newport Ship where it was found 500 hundred years after it was abandoned in an inlet on the edge of town.
The model of the ship has been 3D printed from a digital reconstruction produced by Irish Marine Architect, Pat Tanner.
