This section deals with information recovered from shipwreck sites. From the beginning, the NADL was concerned with a number of questions pertaining to:
a) the standardization of the collection of information from a shipwreck site;
b) the standardization of the storage of the different supports and types of information retrieved from a shipwreck site during the survey and excavation phases;
c) a reflection on the most effective ways to publish primary information;
d) a reflection on the best ways to interpret and reconstruct ships from their archaeological remains, how to convey the uncertainties inherent to every reconstruction and the iterative nature of all interpretations and reconstructions.
