Introduction

ForSEAdiscovery

ForSEAdiscovery is a European funded (Grant agreement no. 607545) project that combines dendrochronology, archaeology, and history in a multi-disciplinary approach to understand timber supplies for the construction of early modern vessels in the Iberian Peninsula.

The overarching objective for the ForSEAdiscovery project is to consolidate a research line combining history, maritime archaeology, geographical information systems (GIS), dendrochronology, wood anatomy, and geo/dendro chemistry. The project aims to train and improve the proficiency of the Initial Training Networks (ITN) fellows and students in different research areas. It provides work experience and engages the fellows in workshops designed to improve their communication, research, and management techniques to promote transferable skills for future research in academia and the private sector. The project is organised into three working packages (WP) for the different disciplines represented. Work package one is focused on history (WP 1), the second work package deals with maritime archaeology (WP 2), and the third work package revolves around the wood sciences (WP 3).

The research leading to these results has received funding from the People Programme (Marie Curie Actions) of the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP72007-2013) under REA grant agreement no. PITN-GA 2013-607545.

This collection represents the data collected by ForSEAdiscovery during the fieldwork operations in 2015 and 2016. It is archaeological and diver data collected on five different shipwreck sites, four in the north of Spain, and one off the south coast of England. The collection consists of diver video, underwater photos, topsides photos, site reports, dive administration, and underwater photogrammetry.
