    None of the three links I posted were 'google sources'. I just used google to find them. Are you looking for a web site that google doesn't know about? Good luck with that.

    I googled for shipbuilding "12th century" and found this:

    Wiki. Figures.

    Was there a sternpost or rudder on the images you saw?

    Jimmy, a sternpost was introduced about the time in question, i will have to have another look at the images, i have seen a reference to the white ship that calls it a (snake ship) whatever that means.
