HUMA Project 2008

Drawing timbers on site in Gotland

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.
