Forgotten wrecks of the First World War by the Maritime Archaeology Trust

Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War is a four year (2014-2018) project devised and delivered by the Maritime Archaeology Trust to coincide with the centenary of the Great War. At the heart of the project is a desire to raise the profile of a currently under-represented aspect of the First World War. While attention is often focused on the Western Front and major naval battles like Jutland, historic remains from the war lie, largely forgotten, in and around our seas, rivers and estuaries. South Coast wreck sites which include merchant and naval ships, passenger, troop and hospital ships, ports, wharfs, buildings and foreshore hulks are often unrecognised and unprotected and have been degrading and deteriorating due to natural and human processes, for approximately 100 years.

You can now view the free interactive map viewer on the below link. This fantastic website contains very interesting material, including; 3D models, site reports and articles and is an important resource for maritime archaeologists.
