Archaeocast 11: Diving on Protected Wrecks

Archaeocast show

Summary: Archaeocast joins our coastal and marine dive team on board the Wessex Explorer. Divers Graham Scott, Matt Astill and Niall Callan explain the work that Wessex Archaeology do in support of the Protection of Wrecks Act (1973). During this dive they investigate the Norman’s Bay wreck and Matt describes it to us from below the waves. This is the first archaeocast recorded by Time Travelling by Water, our marine and coastal outreach project, which is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Archaeocast 11 was recorded on location by Gemma Ingason. Editing and post-production were undertaken on dry land at Wessex Archaeology's headquarters in Salisbury, England, by Gemma Ingason and Tom Goskar. 20:09 minutes (18.46 MB)Archaeocast
