The tradition of Celtic boatbuilding of the Roman period, developed in the Netherlands into the medieval tradition that produced cogs, the dominant sea-going ships of the twelft through fourteenth centuries, as well as a variety of related inland craft. Careful examination of an early fiftheenth-century cog from the reclaiamed land of the Zuiderzee, Almere wijk 13, reveals details of the construction process and structural thought involved in cog building. Despite the abandonment of lapstrake planking in favor of carvel in the fiftheenth century, Dutch shipwrights continued to build even larger sea-going ships in a bottom-based manner, and were thus able to take quick advantage of the economic benefits of the new technology. A first comparison of the artefact inventories from the Almere cog and four fourteenth- and fifteenth-century small cogs and related cargo vessels provided indications for standard artefacts on board late-medieval ships, rubricated in three important categories: - cooking, eating and drinking; - tools; - personal belongings/weaponry. Remarkable finds are a birchwood leper clapper, a leather bag or pouch, a horseman's spur, and some human bones.
