Wreck of a small 17th-century vessel in the Dutch IJsselmeer investigated
During the last two weeks, a team of Dutch and British marine archaeologists have carried out an archaeological assessment of a wooden wreck in the middle of the Markermeer, a part of the IJsselmeer and former Zuyderzee, between the towns of Enkhuizen and Lelystad. The wreck was located during large-scale geophysical surveys in the area.
MSDS Marine and Vestigia are pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enable us to bring together the extensive experience of both organisations for the benefit of underwater cultural heritage research, promotion, education, and enjoyment. We will be working on our first joint project in the IJsselmeer, not far from Amsterdam, later this summer and look forward to developing further links and sharing knowledge to support capacity building in the sector.
