London shipwreck from the 17th century available in 3D

In recent years it has become increasingly popular to digitalise wrecks and bring them into a digital form. All kinds of visualisations, models, projects and other multimedia materials make it possible to get to know the history and current state and appearance of many interesting wrecks to which access is, for various reasons, limited.

A virtual tour of the wreck of the ‘London’, is another such initiative delivered by government agency Historic England. This time the general public were given access to one of England’s most important warships, which rests sunk in two parts, near Southend Pier, Essex.

Historic England has again carried out 3D digitisation, in partnership with ArtasMedia, CyanSub and MSDS Marine, known for their previous projects. As a result, the well-preserved, yet inaccessible to most divers, wreck can be visited by anyone.

[blockquote style=”2″]”The wreck is located in waters characterised by very limited visibility and strong currents. It is therefore neither particularly attractive nor an easy place to dive. For these reasons, among others, so few people have seen it so far. By realising the 3D visualisation, we want to bring people closer to this very important ship for England,” said archaeologist Michael Walsh ofCotswold Archaeology.

“London” was a magnificent warship that measured 37.6 metres long, 12.5 metres wide and had 76 guns and was the strength of the English Royal Navy. She entered service in 1656. An accidental explosion in 1665 contributed to her sinking. It killed 300 crew members. There were 24 survivors of the explosion.

The wreck, which lies at the bottom of the Thames estuary in the North Sea, has been explored and documented by archaeologists for nearly 10 years. Along with the 3D digitalisation, much of the photo and video documentation that has been produced to date is now available, with audio commentaries available.

If you would like to visit the ship “London”, you can do so here.
