On Wednesday night Andrew Roberts from the SAMPHIRE team travelled to Perth to meet the Perth BSAC Dive Club (https://perth-bsac.co.uk/) to discuss our upcoming maritime archaeology investigations on the west coast. Perth BASC is one of the most active clubs in this part of Scotland and nearly 20 members attended the presentation, held in the Moncrieff Arms in downtown Perth. As always, the presentation emphasized the role of local divers and community members in Project SAMPHIRE and encouraged divers to become involved in the upcoming field season.
The presentation was well received with several attendees submitting sites and providing new possible site locations to the team. Several members expressed interest in participating in future fieldwork as well. This was a great opportunity to talk directly to active divers and encourage interest and participation in the project. We look forward to continued cooperation with the Perth Sub Aqua Club in the upcoming field season.
