Presently known as the Wheels Wreck


This picture is of the site of one of our (IMAG) most current projects. It is taster of what we call the wheels wreck off little Ganinick Island. We found this as yet unidentified wreck in 60 feet of water last summer (2005). After notifying English Heritage of the site they then sent a team of archaeologists to survey the site in July 2006. There are over twenty wheels of various styles and sizes among a massive cargo of mining equipment intended for who knows where. We think black and white makes a more moody picture.
