Royal Court Hotel, 233 Ballybogey Road, Portrush, County Antrim, BT53 8SL
Historic Shipwrecks of the North Coast

About

There are numerous historic shipwrecks lying off the North Coast. These wrecks have the ability to inform us about many aspects of our history which makes them of interest to archaeologists and part of our shared heritage. Wrecks can also serve as important tourist assets attracting recreational divers and bringing additional benefits to our local economy.

In this illustrated talk, maritime archaeologist Rory McNeary will outline the nature of this underwater resource, describe the basic tools of underwater archaeological research and explain some of the mechanisms used for its protection.
