Virtual exhibition: "Following Medieval Wrecks"


We are surrounded by traces of ancient peoples' activities. In maritime circles sunken ships cause the strongest excitement. Some wrecks, especially those relatively new metal ones, make an impression by their size and often excellent preservation state. However most of archeologically significant object are less impressive and may remain unnoticed by an untrained eye. Frequently, these are merely elements of wooden ship’s construction or a dugout buried in mud , yet they are priceless sources of information about ancient times.

The main aim of the virtual exhibition is to present Polish and Norwegian achievements in maritime archaeology, as well as similarities and differences in methods of researches, conservation and presentation of its results and elaboraton of the offers of common projects in this range. Also very relevant is to depict archaeological underwater researches as a source of researches and historical studies. First of all, exhibition would show the work of the main members of the project, but also others centers from both countries.
