York Archaeological Trust’s Conservation Team are currently in the process of conserving a gun carriage dating back to 1665. Part of the warship HMS London, which exploded off Southend-on-Sea in Essex, the item has been remarkably well preserved for the last 350 years laying on the sea bed. It was recovered from the Thames Estuary by Historic England, along with Cotswold Archaeology and divers, in August, and was transported to York for year-long conservation work in YAT’s Resource Centre.
