Medieval boat raised from riverbed

A 500-year-old medieval ship has been raised from a riverbed in the Netherlands.

A team of construction workers found the 20 metre long vessel.

They had been digging up the port in Kampen when they made the discovery.

Archaeologists used a specially made metal frame and straps to act as a harness so that they could pull the boat out of the water.

It's really rare to find a medieval boat so well preserved.
