The Island Wreck Site Underwater And Associated Photographs

As the survey continued, the Team noted a number of small concretions which had left their mark and stain on the surrounding coral. In addition a number of cannon eating Echinometre Lucunter  were discovered having eaten and sculpted the reefscape. A small piece of timber was discovered amongst some concretions under the sand. It is difficult to say that this piece came from the wreck but due to its closeness to the concretions it is highly probable.

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.
