On 8.-12. October the 13th International Symposium on Boat and Ship Archaeology (ISBSA) was held in Amsterdam, on naval premises next to the Dutch Maritime Museum. Aside from meeting friends & colleagues, one highlight was the excursion to the BATAVIA (1628) reconstruction in Lelystad. On this principle international conference – taking place only every three years at varying venues – new research on shipwrecks from all over the world and from all periods is presented. I contributed to the poster session with a case study from Bremen, introducing and re-evaluating three distinctively constructed shipwrecks from high/late medieval times. The poster can be downloaded in full resolution. A more detailed article on these finds will appear in print in the ISBSA proceedings.
