Rare Native American birch bark canoe found in Cornwall





A rare Native American canoe thought to be more than 250 years old has been found on a family estate in Cornwall.

The birch bark canoe was discovered in a barn on the Enys estate near Penryn.

It is believed the Canadian boat was brought to Cornwall by Lt John Enys who fought in Quebec during the American War of Independence.

The canoe will be preserved and put on display to the public at the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth before being repatriated to Canada....
