Eight Bronze Age wooden boats discovered in a quarry in Peterborough are now being conserved at the city's Flag Fen archaeological centre.
The 4,000 year old vessels are being kept cold and wet to stop them from deteriorating.
They will eventually be treated with the same chemical that's been used to preserve the Tudor warship the Mary Rose.

Experts have been taking part in a dig at the site since the end of last month hoping to find out more about a 3-thousand-500 year old timber causeway.
The first archaeological dig in a decade has begun at Flag Fen, near Peterborough, as parts of an ancient wooden causeway are being excavated.
The dig has been funded by donations from those taking part, Stuart Leithes reports.
A dig due to start next week is expected to reveal new clues to the mystery of a 3,500 year old timber causeway.
It is hoped that during the three-week dig at Flag Fen, near Peterborough, the first on the site for 10 years, more amazing finds will be made.
Last time these included the oldest wheel in England and one of only two gold rings from the period found in the world. The timber structure – one of the oldest of its kind known to man – consists of 60,000 pieces of timber in rows of five and is 1km long.
The dig takes starts on Tuesday, July 24 and more information can be found here
