Four videos, each exploring a historic shipwreck or protected submarine subject to designation under the Protection of Wrecks Act (1973), have been made available online. The videos are available on YouTube, and explore the sites of the Wheel Wreck, HMS/m Holland V submarine, HMS/m A1 submarine and HMS Drake which lies in Irish waters.

These videos were made by Jenny Austin and Alex Pope who joined Wessex Archaeology in October 2009 to gain work experience with the Coastal and Marine team.

They took video footage recorded by our divers during routine surveys in support of the Protection of Wrecks Act 1973 and edited them into video clips exploring each of the wrecks. Background information is given by an informative voice over explaining the history of each site.
