Le Casimir Wreck Underwater Photographs for June/ July 2014 Project.
At the end of the survey, the wreck site was covered with over fifty rice sacks filled with sand and then covered with layers of sand to protect it. The artefacts which had been recovered were photographed, tagged and placed in conservation at ADMAT’s Maritime Archaeological Centre.
The Team needs to complete the survey and find the bow section with the cant frames as well as aim to locate any ships construction on the starboard side of the ship. Therefore whilst the newly discovered information from this survey indicates that the board of enquiry was correct, we need to return to the wreck site to continue the excavationto find the remaining evidence.
ADMAT's maritime archaeological work on this wreck site was assisted by ADMAT-FRANCE a non profit organisation based in the Institut de Paléontologie Humaine, Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris.
ADMAT-FRANCE is a sub division of the Anglo ~ Danish Maritime Archaeological Team
