University of Portsmouth researchers are using the latest digital technology to help more of us uncover the secrets of our seas.
In the latest episode of Life Solved, Dr Ann Coats takes us through a cutting-edge project to investigate shipwrecks around the UK coastline and reveal more about our maritime past.
By drawing together research from across different disciplines, the Unpath’d Waters Project (UNPATH for short) has been working with museums and exhibitions such as Portsmouth’s Mary Rose, to design immersive exhibitions.
But other specialist groups are also gathering information about our past, from landscapes to ocean scientists, by studying the UK’s shipwreck hotspots.
In the podcast Ann takes us through the stages to this enormous project, and its big picture of creating an astounding, accessible resource upon the history of our seas.
