Largs, Ardrossan, Irvine, Troon, Ayr

Today the SAMPHIRE team left Inverkip and had a very busy day working our way south through Largs, Ardrossan, Irvine, Troon and ending in Ayr. Along the way the team visited various different establishments including the Vikingrar! in Largs, the Scottish Maritime Museum in Irvine and the marinas in Ardrossan and Troon. The team received a warm welcome everywhere they went and have picked up several new leads for new maritime archaeological sites.  Finding the right people to talk to in each location is part of the investigative process for Project SAMPHIRE and the hunt continues!
