The project briefly:
This is a unique opportunity to join ADMAT’s maritime archaeological project in the historic town of Monte Cristi on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. ADMAT is working with Oficina Nacional de Patrimonio Cultural Subacuático (ONPCS) to conduct a maritime archaeological survey and excavation of this possible French shipwreck.

For most of 2006 and in part in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010, this wreck was subject to an intensive archaeological survey. The new information expanded the original survey conducted in 2000 and yielded over 2,000 artefacts, three iron cannons, three anchors and many important French faience ware sherds.

Research in Paris led by Dr Francois Gendron and Dr. Jean Rosen from CNRS, has confirmed that the faience ware came from the "Nevers" foundry and dates the sinking of this wreck between 1720 and 1723.

Applications are invited from divers, students, archaeologists and volunteers (minimum age 18) wishing to participate in the project. Only eight places per week are available, so this is a unique opportunity to have maximum hands on training.

There are two different types of activity. One working on the wreck site underwater the other at the base, working on the artefacts.
