One of the most interesting exhibits was the extensive remains of a dugout canoe recovered from mud in Poole Harbour and dating back to approximately 300BC. It had been carved from a single oak log approx. 10 m long, and is the largest found in the South of England. As may be expected in a sea port museum, there were rare artefacts from a number of wrecks found in the harbour and along the coast. These combined with evidence of the Roman occupation; including a very rare cast glass head made this a museum well worth visiting.
