ADMAT always promotes the protection of underwater cultural heritage. The Team are delighted to present some of ADMAT's Excavating Shipwrecks Lecture Series all over the world, to great audiences large and small.
On Wed, Feb 13, 2019, in Scarborough, Ontario in Canada; Raimund Krob presented “Le Dragon” to an enthusiastic crowd of Scarborough Underwater Club Inc (SUCI) members. SUCI is one of Ontario’s largest and longest established scuba diving clubs and promotes safety, adventure, fun, and education in the sport of scuba diving. Raimund was the Project leader for the Le Dragon maritime archaeological survey in 2018 and will continue his excellent work as project leader in 2019.
The presentation was very well received and numerous members sought him out after the presentation to learn more about the historic and brave ship.
Mike McAllister, President of the Scuba Club said " I would like to let you know that club members thoroughly enjoyed your presentation on the ongoing marine archeological work on the French ship "Le Dragon", sunk off the north coast of the Dominican Republic in 1783. The story of how the ship came to be wrecked and the methods used to identify the wreck were most interesting. The work of ADMAT has added to the knowledge of maritime history!"
