Shipwrecks

RudderPeople have been messing about in boats for thousands of years. Either by accident or design, many boats and ships have ended up on the shore or seabed. Shipwrecks can be very complicated things to understand, because they represent such a mix of technology and tradition in their construction, and of equipment, cargo and personal possessions in their contents. The stories they tell can be close to home, or of far off lands, and their last journeys range from the everyday to the extraordinary.
