Summary : A logboat was found and damaged during ditch clearing near to the Glastonbury lake village site in 1892. The boat was hollowed from a single piece of oak and although fairly complete when found is now fragmentary. The boat was assumed to relate to the village and therefore has been ascribed an Iron Age date of c100BC. It is in the Glastonbury Museum.

ST 49804173: An oak logboat found in the Summer of 1884, in a ditch a few fields away from Glastonbury Lake Village (ST 44 SE 5), was damaged during ditch cleaning. In 1892 it was extracted and given by Bullied to the Glastonbury Antiquarian Society. Remains are now fragmentary, the sides almost detached and much has been lost since Bulleid photographed the boat in 1894. The boat was undoubtedly associated with the lake dwellings and therefore dates from c100 BC. (3)
