Events at Arreton Shipwreck Centre

The Maritime Archaeology Trust is offering interesting activities with opportunities to learn new skills during the week Sept. 25 – 29.

If interested contact

There will be a 3D Capture Workshop as part of the Canoe to Cannon Project ( Using items from the Shipwreck Centre collection, this workshop will look at 3D imaging techniques and how these can be of use in artefact analysis.  This ties in with the purpose and aims of the Canoe to Cannon Project whereby local individuals and groups are encouraged to engage with heritage to build an understanding of Britain’s maritime past.

Wednesday 27th September from 9am – 12pm. Due to space and resources, we are limiting this workshop to 6 attendees

They will also be carrying out a survey of Yaverland Battery. This will include photogrammetry, drone usage and general survey of site. It is anticipated that this will take place on Friday 29th September. We can accommodate a maximum of 5 volunteers. We would need to confirm nearer the time due to weather, times etc. If anyone is interested in assisting at all, please let us know.

Please note that good level of fitness will be required due to the difficult and uneven terrain.

Volunteers are also needed to help with artefact recording which will continue throughout the week.
