Replica bronze age boat takes to the sea

The crew of a replica bronze age boat has successfully managed to sail the vessel around the Kent coast today. It's the longest journey the boat has made - from Folkestone to Dover. The boat was designed and rebuilt by archaeologists after the original was unearthed nearby twenty two years ago. Andrea Thomas reports. She spoke to Richard Christian, from the Port of Dover, crew member Andrew Richardson and Paul Bennett from Canterbury Archaeological Trust.
