Bronze Age boats 'more sophisticated' than assumed

Conservation work has started on eight preserved and extremely rare Bronze Age log boats excavated from a brick manufacturing clay quarry near Peterborough.

The 3,500-year-old boats were discovered in 2011 and will be conserved using techniques pioneered for the Mary Rose.

Jo Black went to meet some of the people behind the project.
