Brief description The project will make a significant contribution to our understanding of Europeans active in the Indian Ocean and our region during the 17th and 18th centuries through the unique window into the past provided by maritime archaeological sites. A strategic international alliance of university and museum researchers will return to shipwreck sites excavated over 40 years ago to examine how approaches to maritime archaeological sites have changed over time in terms of new research questions and new technologies. Outcomes will include new interpretation of significant European and Australian histories and sites in academic and popular outputs. Significantly the project will help formulate future study protocols for maritime cultural heritage.
