MARITIME LIBRARY

The “Maritime Library” project is an initiative designed to encompass all things related to the sea, including naval history, marine archaeology, ocean biology, coastal exploration, and more. This comprehensive repository aims to gather and curate information, both published and discovered, covering a wide range of maritime themes. From the chronicles of ancient naval battles to the latest findings in marine biology, the Maritime Library will serve as a valuable resource for researchers, historians, and enthusiasts alike. It will include documented discoveries, observational data, and scholarly works, offering a holistic view of the world’s oceans and their historical and contemporary significance. By bringing together diverse maritime knowledge, the Maritime Library strives to deepen our understanding of the sea and its profound impact on human civilization and the natural world.

DEVONPORT NAVAL HISTORICAL CENTRE ARTEFACT SCAN PROJECT

Promare is partnering with The Devonport Naval Heritage Centre (DNHC) to create a digital archive of maritime artefacts using 3D scanning technology. Led by heritage professional Adela Hawley and digital outreach and engagement lead Charlotte Ashcroft-Booth, this project will make the collection accessible online, attracting a global audience, and aiming to increase visits and volunteer involvement at the DNHC. A crowdfunding campaign has been launched to support this initiative, funding the purchase of scanning equipment, volunteer training, website development, and content creation.

virtual museum 

 

PROMARE has been actively involved in a diverse range of projects worldwide, collaborating closely with local organizations to explore and document the rich maritime heritage of various regions. These projects have yielded numerous significant artifacts, each contributing to a deeper understanding of humanity’s historical and cultural relationship with the sea. To make these discoveries accessible to a wider audience, PROMARE is developing a virtual museum. This digital platform will showcase the significant artifacts uncovered during their projects, offering detailed descriptions, high-resolution images, and contextual information. Visitors to the virtual museum will have the opportunity to explore these artifacts from anywhere in the world, gaining insights into global maritime history and the collaborative efforts that brought these treasures to light. By bridging the gap between past and present, the virtual museum aims to educate and inspire, highlighting the importance of preserving and studying our underwater cultural heritage.

documents and books

 

PROMARE is undertaking an extensive project to collect and digitize a vast array of maritime-related materials, including books, documents, music, photographs, paintings, drawings, and other published and unpublished resources on paper. These digitized resources will be made available through our website, providing open access to anyone with an interest in maritime history and culture. In addition to the digital archive, we aim to create a physical space where visitors can enjoy select original copies of these materials. We invite anyone in possession of such resources to contact us, whether for in-situ digitization or donation, to help us preserve and share the rich maritime heritage with a global audience.
