Down To The Seabed. 50 years of archaeological underwater research of the National Maritime Museum in Gdansk

Oct 2 - Dec 31 2021       ul. Ołowianka 9-13, Gdańsk
Excavated from the bottom of the Baltic, Down To The Seabed gives a voice to various finds and treasures from shipwrecks and other maritime graveyards. Through DNA tracing technology, even the most mundane of objects found at sea have a story ingrained in their existence.

The exhibition is characterized by an original arrangement that emphasizes the uniqueness of the monuments and the circumstances under which they were discovered. The viewer, together with underwater archaeologists, will descend to the bottom of the Baltic Sea to find the most interesting and fascinating objects. In the atmosphere of mystery in the underwater world, dominated by silence and darkness, the audience will learn about the genetic code of monuments previously unknown to the wider public.

From a jar of butter to clothing, daily objects, and even a flute, which lay 235 years on the seabed and was miraculously traced back to an officer serving on the ship "General Carleton", DNA technology brings these artifacts back to life in a way that was never thought possible!
