Wealth of experience

Projects span a wide range of themes – whether it is undertaking strategic studies; studying the shipwright’s timber marks on HMS Victory; researching the maritime past of the west coast of Scotland through community engagement and knowledge sourcing; or researching and sharing the story behind the loss of the World War I troop ship SS Mendi.

Archaeological remains, archives, museums, private collections and community interest groups provide a wealth of information. Our team of specialists is one of the largest operating today and has invaluable experience in gathering, interpreting, recording and protecting our vast maritime heritage.
