NEW: Frozen in Time

A new exhibition at the Shipwreck Treasure Museum that explores how cutting-edge technology has changed shipwreck hunting for archaeologists in polar regions.

In contrast to the historic, early imagery from Shackleton’s famous Endurance adventure, this new image-led exhibition for 2022 explores exciting archaeological shipwreck discoveries beneath the Arctic and Antarctic seas that have employed the latest, cutting-edge technology.

The four shipwrecks featured are Franklin’s HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, Benjamin Leigh-Smith’s Eira, the infamous RMS Titanic and Shackleton’s Endurance.

Modern colour photographs, including those taken this year by the Endurance22 expedition having discovered the wreck of Endurance, and archaeological scans alongside images of underwater archaeology in action. They showcase how shipwrecks are discovered, explored, and documented today in these remote, inhospitable parts of the world.

Access to the Frozen in Time exhibition is included in the admission to the Shipwreck Treasure Museum from April to October 2022.
