Underwater Heritage in the North Sea - 18/02/2014

As a partner in the IWT marine archaeology project SeArch, the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) has developed a website for the project that will guide visitors through the research and legislation of cultural heritage items, including with a timeline and maps of the heritage sites.

It is little known to people that there are traces of heritage to be found in the sea and that this maritime heritage is making up an important part of our cultural heritage. However, this marine heritage is under increasing pressure by commercial activities at sea, such as sand and gravel extraction, dredging, the construction of wind farms, etc. The website address is: www.sea-arch.be.
