In 2016 we have started to implement the “Ancient Harbour” project. It aims to maintain the endangered non-material culture heritage – wooden shipbuilding skills in Latvia, passing the skills to next generation and evoking interest in craftmanship and seamanship. The first stage of the project also envisions the reconstruction of full scale historical Riga ship – this accomplishment would serve as a milestone for Latvian archaeologists, historians and other experts who have studied historical ships in Latvia.
To fulfil this intention, the “Ancient Harbour Fund” was established. Its task is to attract EU funding and investments, to initiate and further develop this project into significant cultural, educational, entertaining, and tourism-attracting object of Riga infrastructure on the coast of Daugava river.
