Model of a Hanseatic
League carvel-built ship of 1470
Hanseatic League ship of 1470 is a symbol of an important historical
epoch. In 15th century the clinker-built Hansa cogs were more and more
replaced by larger carvel-built ship like the one shown here. The ship
model was built from walnut and maple after plans by Heinrich Winter.
