A Coracle Man in South Wales

Coracle Man, South Wales
One of the most ancient forms of water transport, known to be used in the primitive days of the Ancient Britons, the coracle is still employed on some waterways in Wales and Ireland.  These fragile-looking craft are easily carried on dry land and propelled on water by a single-bladed paddle.
