A team of history and woodwork experts have converged upon Loch Tay in Scotland to recreate a 3,000-year-old logboat discovered there in 1994.

They hope to learn more about how prehistoric communities made such vessels.

Woodworking specialist Damian Goodburn said: “We’ve had some tools specially made, which are replicas of late Bronze Age tools, but we’re also using a mixture of modern and Bronze Age tools really to give people a feel of progress in woodwork technology.”
