Artifacts

One of the activities that motivate many wreck divers is collecting artifacts. Shipwreck artifacts are objects, usually man-made, that were parts of the ship or cargo, or personal items that belonged to the crew or passengers. The artifacts pictured here, help tell the stories of the lost ships and the people on board. Many divers take great pride in restoring their artifacts and displaying them for others to see.
