The Maritime Archaeology Trust is a registered charity with over 20 years’ experience in research, investigations and pioneering techniques for the study of marine cultural heritage. Originating the South of England as the Hampshire and Wight Trust for Maritime Archaeology, we have grown from our regional roots to an internationally renowned authority on maritime archaeological issues and research.

We are proud of all of our work. This is why our fundraising efforts and donations are reinvested into delivering and developing education and outreach programmes to help inform the public about this rich area of cultural heritage.
