Some of the audio-visual presentations include rare footage of divers exploring the wrecks and of archaeologists and other experts engaged in the essential scientific and interpretative work to make the wrecks give up their secrets. Just how do the experts date wrecks and find out about life on board? We show you some of the secrets.
We can even offer a chance to engage in some detective work relating to the Amsterdam. Just what did happen on the ship in the hours leading up to the moment when Captain Klump took the decision to run her onto the beach, and just how did a musket ball come to be found near the leg of 16 year old Adrian Wegevaren, the cabin boy?
