In June 2014 MR&C participated as researcher / diver on the Tróia-1 shipwreck, Portugal. This wreck is located near the mouth of the Sado river, Grândola / Setúbal in Portugal. The remains of this wooden hull date from 1770 to 1850 entered the official historical wreck record.

Main objective of this short campaign (1 week)  was to measure certain wreckparts and investigate some undefined objects which were exposed .Further research is scheduled for November this year.
