Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War

Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War

Visit our new temporary exhibition until March 2016. With over 700 wrecks along England’s South coast, there’s so much to discover and learn about the often under-represented aspect of the First World War. Explore real and replica shipwreck artefacts and information about the War at sea including the struggles that took place on a daily basis, just off our shores.

Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War is a Heritage Lottery Funded (HLF) four year project devised and delivered by the Maritime Archaeology Trust to coincide with the centenary of the Great War.
