Stone ships burial sites, are mostly scandinavian, often monumental in proportions, and primarily from about 1000 BC.

Before they were plundered most of them looked like this, filled to the 'sheer' with smaller stones. In the center, on deck would have been a single or multiple stone coffins, with the remains already cremated. The ship would have been filled with pots containing supplies needed for the journey to the afterlife.

That dinghy carries a big centreboard, and it badly needs re caulking.

How do we know these aren't some kind of early Jaycees community playground project?

I was expecting something like this when I opened the thread:

But the burial mound ships seem actually far more "wonderful".

I wonder whether 'stone boats' were used to build these 'stone ships'?

Anyone considered the quasi gynaecological feminist perspective acknowledging mothers?

Those are pretty cool! I've never much cared what happens to my remains, but could dig a stone ship!

G'day Purri, I'm not sure that the cultural matters you speak of hold true in these circumstances, and as for the shape, form follows function. Surely you are not assuming such matters with all double enders?

Not quite but it's drawing a "long" bow to assume that such memorials have no philosophical (maternal) antecedents.

I've seen this one a couple of times and it really impressed and amused me.

I'd settle for a nice stone skiff, a 15 footer.

Heres a 'stone ship' that floats, and sails.

"Ian Baird, Dorset boatbuilder, has found this picture of a Thames Barge, loading Portland stone on a magic lantern slide.
The barge is the Charles Hutson of Rochester (the bowsprit shroud is obscuring the 's'), built in 1889 at John Bird's yard, Conyer Creek, for the Hutson barge family."
Here are two short film links showing the gruelling Portland stone industry. The second film includes a brief clip of an unidentified Thames sailing barge being loaded.
