Did you know that archaeology isn’t just about digging on land? There is archaeology to be found under the sea, from shipwrecks to prehistoric hand axes! 

Growing offshore development for renewable energy is giving us better views of the seabed around the UK than ever before. Archaeologists find and interpret archaeology offshore such as ship and plane wrecks, as well as landscapes that have been submerged since the end of the last Ice Age. 

Join Wessex Archaeology in celebrating Maritime week UK by getting hands on with marine archaeology.

Discover how artefacts are found on the sea bed, what we do with them and experience diving on a wreck for yourself through virtual reality.
