 Primitive Fishing Gallery

The first displays look back to the earliest fishing methods - gathering, trapping and hunting. Early methods of transport over water are examined - the raft, the skin boat, the bark boat and the log boat. By the entrance is a Scottish dug-out boat of about AD 500 - a replica created in the Museum courtyard with iron-age type tools used to hollow and shape a huge 3-ton tree-trunk. It was completed in October 1991 and did very well in its first sea-trial in the harbour!
