HUMA Project 2008
The HUMA project on Gotland focuses on the maritime archaeological heritage of the island in the Baltic. Fieldwork in 2008 concentrated on the remains of the Danish-Lübeck fleet which foundered in a storm on the west coast of Gotland in 1566.
Students and staff of the Maritime Archaeology Programme took part in a three week survey at Brusviken, just north of Visby. Besides conducting an area distribution survey with metal detectors, the preserved stern section of a vessel was recorded.
