Historic vessel conservation & management


Drawing on our unrivalled experience in the maritime heritage sphere, we are able to offer conservation and management services to owners and trustees of historic vessels. Many precious and irreplaceable vessels of all sizes lie in dockyards, museums, private collections and on the foreshore.
Combining the value and accessibility of our knowledge and experience of historic ships with our expertise in the fields of public and professional dissemination, we can enhance these assets making them available to future generations. Preserving the evidence of our seafaring heritage through Wessex Archaeology’s conservation and management can add value whilst ensuring the on-going protection of our maritime resource.
