Hoo, WHOLE lotta guesswork being piled up, there! Obviously that's all they've got when dealing with anything "Dark Age", but...

Still, neat find! I've never heard of slipways being found before at all. Though I *am* a little curious why they can't be just for beaching and housing completed ships, rather than building.

Very interesting! I hope they use the information they gain from studying the slipways to estimate the size of the ships they could handle. That could be valuable information providing some insight into both trade and warfare along the coast of the eastern Med. during the late Bronze Age and early Iron Age.
