Originator:Muckelroy, K.
Summary:An investigation was sponsored by the National Maritime Museum, British Museum and British Academy, the British Museum providing assistance with conservation of objects found. Three further bronze objects - two axe heads and a blade - were found, increasing the likelihood of a wreck site. The site at a depth of 6m - 14m, mostly covered with tall seaweed, sand, rocks and gravel is exposed to south and south west winds. By the end of 1979 seven bronzes had been recovered, including two palstaves and four eroded blades as well as the original sword.
