Rib Bolt

£100.00

Evidence shows that there were 58 rib bolts used on the Sutton Hoo Ship which held one of the 26 recorded ribs into place. These fixings are called ‘bolts’ rather than ‘rivets’  because they are comparatively much longer. They varied in shank length, but 6 inches/15.24 cm would be typical. The diameter ranges between 1/2 inch to 5/8 of an inch (or 1.27 1.58 cm).
