Come and find out about the Department of Archaeology's major maritime project looking at 2,500 years of shipwrecks at the bottom of the Black Sea. In the dark, a kilometre down, vessels from the Greek and Roman periods though to the present day survive, and are being surveyed using unmanned vehicles and photogrammetry. If you want to you can see printed models and the ships and even build your own cork boat or raft.
