This chapter examines the evidence for maritime activities in the southern North Sea basin during the first millennium BC in order to reconnect the practice of long-distance travelling, exchange, and trade with the well-researched products of this activity. It contextualizes the finds of boats from this period, and through this contextualization explores the cultural biographies of boats and the ritual and social significance of seafaring.

Keywords:   cultural biography, boats, North Sea basin, watercraft, maritime activities, travel, exchange, seafaring
