Introduction

Photograph of cannon

The Charlestown Shipwreck and Heritage Centre is located in the small harbour of Charlestown, near St Austell in Cornwall. It is a privately owned maritime museum housing many objects recovered from historic shipwrecks. The objects on display range in date from the 16th century ot the present day.

The main aim of this project is the recording of objects in the Charlestown Shipwreck and Heritage Centre originating from wrecks currently protected under the Protection of Wrecks act 1973 (PWA). The record includes a finds database, a provenance record detailing how the objects ended up in the museum and a detailed photographic record of the objects.
