Dunwich Wreck with Sidescan and DIDSON images

New Wreck Discovered at Dunwich

Touching the Tide HLF funded DIDSON survey of specific targets at Dunwich has led to two key findings; 1) The medieval town site is currently covered by sand, burying all but the tops of he largest ruins, and; 2) discovery of a previously unknown wreck. The wreck is wooden with copper sheathing on the hull which dates it to post c.1750. The wreck is formed of large (20cm wide) wooden ribs, with much stone ballast covering the site. The Wreck is large (c. 30m length). We are curently trying to find ot its origin.
