The cog ship of Kampen
In 1983 the remains of a Hanseatic League cog ship were found, dating
from about 1340, in Nijkerk, Holland. Based on that finding a replica of
the cog was built in 1997 that today is harboured in the Dutch town of
Kampen. In 2004 the ship proved seaworthy on a trip to the Baltic Sea.
We visited the Kampen cog on two occasions: in March 2001 on a trip to
the Amsterdam maritime museum (photo above) and with the Sail 2005 in
Amsterdam. I took several pictures of the cog ship.
