During a common exhibition titled "1Sea – 4Stories" organised by museums participating in the SeaSide Project, the Polish Maritime Museum in Gdańsk (CMM) is presenting the field "Underwater Archaeology in Poland".
This topic is presented by the history of our underwater research and presentation of the most interesting sites and wrecks examined by our archaeologists. These include:
- a mediaeval port in Puck,
- the wrecks of the Copper Ship (15th century),
- the “Solen” (17th century),
- the “General Carleton” (18th century),
- the W-27 (18th century),
- the “Loreley” (19th century),
- and the “Arngast” (20th century).
The exposition consists of information about the history of the ships and sites, photographs illustrating underwater research, and original artefacts salvaged from the vessels. The exhibition is accompanied by a video presentation of the underwater penetration of the wreck W-28 “Arngast”.
