Qatar MAP - Find 0006

This is a custom-built application developed by the Maritime Archaeology Trust.

This example demonstrates rich content synchronized with the various model views, as well as control of the scene content including colour, texture, opacity and scene components.

Qatar

This beautiful artefact was recovered from an underwater context within the harbour of the once important trading centre of Al Zubarah, north-west Qatar.

Al Zubarah

The base of the vessel emerged first from the fine sand context, positioned below and adjacent to another much larger storage vessel (link).

Despite the lost third handle, the example is generally well preserved and closely resembles similar finds recovered from Al Zubarah, and which are now on display at Zubarah Fort.

Help and FAQ

Why are only wrecks on the south coast of England featured on the map?

The project study area covered this area of the coast, which included from Cornwall to Kent and half way across the Channel. There are many other Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War which lie outside this area, their important stories are still to be told.

Is the database that the viewer draws on still being added to or changed?

Yes, we are making further entries to the database and attaching more information, documents, links and images. These will appear in the viewer after each monthly update.

How frequently will the database and viewer be updated?

We will be adding new information or making amendments to the database on a monthly basis.

Are you able to accept new information or photographs of FWW wrecks that feature in the database/ viewer?

Yes! If a site is within the data-set then we are happy to add new information, photographs, video etc to the records. We cannot accept information or photographs for sites outside of this area. We can only accept photographs which you are able to provide permission for use or are of an age that copyright is expired. To submit information, photographs etc then please email us on:

As a volunteer I found information on a vessel that isn’t showing in the viewer, why?

Thanks to the amazing work of our volunteers who spent thousands of hours researching the sites online we have been able to populate many fields in the database. Alongside the online research other volunteers were researching documents in The National Archives or other maritime archives, sometimes these sources provide different information than online sources. If we are not sure of the accuracy of an entry or feel it needs further work to double check then, for now, we have not included this in publicly available information.

I have spotted a mistake in the data, what should I do?

If you have found something that might be inaccurate then please do let us know! Please email us on:

If you can let us know the site, the field that you think needs changing and a reference to show your source that would be great. We will endeavour to make any updates in our monthly update routine.

How can I support the Maritime Archaeology Trust?

We are a charity and rely on the kind support of volunteers and donors. We also have a Friends of the Trust organisation - to find out more and to join please visit Friends of the Trust
