Earlier: Ancient barge dug up at Bo Bae site - No photos allowed - Bangkok Post, June 10, 2004
...The barge, 17 metres long and 0.30 metre wide, was cleaned and is being kept temporarily in the Bo Bae trading centre. The site has been sealed and photographs are not allowed...
In the 1990s, a 20-metre-long barge was found near Wat Ratchabophit near Klong Lot, a canal dug during the reign of King Rama V more than 100 years ago.
Erbprem Vatcharangkul, archeologist and expert on ancient boats, said parts of Klong Mahanak served as a pier for goods. Klong Mahanak was dug when King Rama I built the capital city more than 200 years ago.
