Hulc and cog
The two main types of ship from 14th century northwest Europe. The hulc on the left was a heavy, round bodied merchant vessel, of the type built in Britain and France. The cog was a German style ship, used by the Hanseatic League. Merchant vessels were sometimes fitted with ‘castles’ at each end and used as warships. Both were built using overlapping planks.
