Iron Age boat goes on display

A boat dating back to the Iron Age has gone on show at a Lincoln museum. The log boat, which has undergone four years of conservation work, is now on display at the city's new archaeological museum - The Collection.

It was discovered in Fiskerton, Nottinghamshire in 2001, while the Environment Agency was carrying out improvement work on flood defences.

The 7m-long (23ft) oak boat will complete the museum's display of Iron Age finds from the region.
