Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War is a Heritage Lottery Funded (HLF) four year project devised and delivered by the Maritime Archaeology Trust to coincide with the centenary of the Great War. At the heart of the project is a desire to raise the profile of a currently under-represented aspect of the First World War. While attention is often focused on the Western Front and major naval battles like Jutland, historic remains from the war lie, largely forgotten, in and around our seas, rivers and estuaries.
A series of events, some involving the Maritime Archaeology Trust's Discovery Bus and/or event tent, are taking place at a range of venues along the south coast. Please see http://www.forgottenwrecks.org/index.php/forgottenwrecks/explore-the-wrecks/events for further information.
