ADMAT's Excavating Shipwrecks Lecture Series Goes Transatlantic

From New York To Southampton, On The QE2

September 25th to October 1st 2003


ADMAT were on board again, on one of the last ever transatlantic cruises by the QE2.  This time the team sent ADMAT's President Simon Q. Spooner and his colleague Florence Prudhomme as the understudy. Simon gave four lectures from the Excavating Shipwreck series. Information and video clips were also given as one of the new lecture topics, The St Kitts Maritime Archaeological Project. This is a project which was created by ADMAT for St Kitts. A detailed presentation explained how the first phase, the survey of the White House Bay Wreck, was conducted as well as information on the next two exciting phases which will happen in 2004. 


All the lectures were full of over 250 people per lecture, as well as other passengers watching the series on their cabin TV's.
