Marine archaeologist Dr Innes McCartney reveals – for the first time – the location and state of the wrecks of all 25 warships sunk in the scuttling of the German fleet at Scapa Flow.
On at the Orkney Museum, Kirkwall is the new exhibition from 4th of May until 2nd of November, as part of #Scapa100.
A programme of events has been announced marking 100 years since the scuttling of the German High Seas fleet in Scapa Flow.
Simon’s use of underwater photogrammetry allows him to, ” explore the wreck without getting wet and to share it with you”. And he did.
“This is an important marine archaeology project surveying what remains of the German High Seas Fleet warships that were salvaged from Scapa Flow in the inter war period.”
The latest technology is being used to reveal more about the wrecks lying in Scapa Flow and events that took place in the waters around Orkney 100 years ago.
