SAMPHIRE Annual Report 2014


The Project SAMPHIRE team have just published their report for 2014 on the project website.The project is run by WA Coastal & Marine from our Edinburgh office and this year’s report includes data on over 50 exciting new maritime archaeological discoveries on the west coast of Scotland. 
Over the last year the SAMPHIRE team have visited coastal communities in the SW Highlands and Argyll, collected reports of marine archaeological sites and undertaken diver investigation from a local converted trawler. They have also conducted a series of local talks and spoken at conferences in Scotland and abroad about the project. The 2014 report focusses on the area around Skye and the Firth of Lorn and includes a smorgasbord of newly discovered and identified shipwrecks, Mesolithic flints, stone anchors and WWII flying boats. All of these discoveries have been made by working together with local divers, fishermen and other local experts on the maritime environment. 
You can see and download the new report here and also grab a copy of the report for 2013 and other resources.
