Shipwrecks are important archaeological sites which can tell us a lot about the cultures that used the ships, and the people that lived and sailed on board them. In Shipwreck on a Table, young audiences are introduced to the major concepts of underwater archaeology. In this exercise students will use information that was collected during the excavation of the Emmanuel Point shipwreck to develop an understanding of how pieces of the shipwreck and the artifacts can inform us about the cultures that built and sailed the ship. This exercise is appropriate for groups of up to 24 students at a time; approximately 45 minutes duration.
