Nautical Archaeology Society The NAS provides support and training courses for amateur and avocational archaeologists second to none. I would whole heartedly recommend joining this society if you have any interest in maritime archaeology.

Adopt-A-Wreck (NAS) The NAS currently have a scheme whereby groups and individuals can adopt a wreck and provide regular reports of it’s condition and any new information gained about it. If you have a favorite dive or shore site you visit regularly why not adopt it?

Friends of Purton. An impressive web site dedicated to a foreshore location where a small fleet of semi-redundant timber lighters were deliberately beached in the winter of 1909, to strengthen an eroding canal bank. Purton Ships' Graveyard now number some 81 vessels and in turn represent the largest collection of maritime artifacts on the foreshore of mainland Britain today.
