The Cattewater Wreck Archive Project
Author(s): Martin J Read
The Cattewater Wreck was the first wreck to be protected by the UK Government and was partially excavated in the 1970s. The Tudor wreck is believed to be an unidentified armed merchantman. The Cattewater Wreck Archive Project, funded by English Heritage, recently improved the long term care and management of the archive held in Plymouth City Museum. Modern tools and techniques have been applied to the archive, such as stable isotope analysis of fish remains, allowing new interpretations to be made. This paper will review some of the results.
