We recently visited the historic ship HMS Trincomalee - the oldest ship still afloat. Built in 1817 and now in Hartlepool this gave CISMAS members a chance to see a vessel of a similar age to HMS Colossus. We also visited the conservation labs at York to see the finds we recovered from Colossus last year in conservation.

CISMAS chairman Sharon Austin hands over finds from the excavation of HMS Colossus to Amanda Martin, the curator of the Isles of Scilly Museum. The finds were recovered in the excavation undertaken by CISMAS in 2012. They were conserved by YAT Conservation.
