Rooswijk 2018 expedition has started

Tuesday, June 19, 2018 - 16:09

From 18 June until 15 August, a team of maritime archaeologists will continue the research and excavation of the Rooswijk. In 2017, the #Rooswijk1740 project was started by the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands, commissioned by the Minister of Education, Culture and Science. Archaeological research, but also historical and genealogical research, has provided us with more  new information about what happened in January 1740 with the ship that was lost off the coast of England. The Rooswijk story can now also be seen online in a virtual exhibition (in Dutch), based on what we now know after the first year of research:
