Underwater Archaeology Volunteers

The UK’s Maritime Archaeology Sea Trust (MAST), in partnership with Bournemouth University, is calling for volunteers to assist with cleaning, recording and preserving artefacts during the underwater excavation of HMS Invincible 1744.

Invincible, built by the French in 1744 and captured by the Royal Navy in 1747, sank in the Solent in 1758. Her special design, unique lines and 74-gun capacity were copied and her class became the model for the Royal Navy’s fleet until sailing vessels were replaced by steamships.

Since 2017, a dedicated team of archaeological divers guided by Dan Pascoe, the site’s licensee, has been working against time in the Solent to reveal the wreck’s secrets in what MAST describe as ‘the country’s most significant maritime archaeology project since the 1980s’.
