ALSF Wrecks on the Seabed


The Wrecks on the Seabed project was designed to test and develop ways of assessing, evaluating and recording wreck sites. The aim was to find the best way of dealing with shipwrecks at risk from dredging or other marine commercial activities. The project was funded by the Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund (ALSF), distributed by English Heritage (EH).

You can also find out about the 14 wrecks that we surveyed or dived on. These are mainly of 19th and 20th century date. They lie off the south coast of England.
