Artefacts from Wrecks
The Forgotten Wrecks project is a non-recovery project and will not be involved with raising artefacts, however, many objects have been recovered from sites in the past and are currnetly held in dispersed collections (some public, some private). Where possible, and with the help of volunteers, the project aims to record them to help 'virtually reunite and recreate’ the archive of sites via a digital record.
In some case photographs and video will be brought together with data from other individuals and sources to help generate 3-D models like this:
