Exploring Forton Lake Vessels with CITiZANWELLIES ESSENTIALThe Forton Lake Project was a collaboration between the Nautical Archaeology Society and the Hampshire & Wight Trust for Maritime Archaeology which highlighted the importance of maritime archaeology to the whole community by encouraging hands-on involvement. Over 3 summers investigations and excavations were carried out on 20 or so ships, as the team uncovered and recorded them and researched their histories.

Join Lauren from the CITiZAN* team to explore the mudflats and learn more about the wrecks.
