now it's not the wreck that is causing some debate but how the job was done, both sides have good points but the question is should this be done to shipwrecks or not

My personal belief Is where there Is a case of great historical interest, careful salvage should be permitted. The 60,000 contents from the 9th century In this case are of great historical interest but I do believe great care should be taken during any salvage given that the vessel would also be a grave to those who lost their lives when It went down. Despite the time period, respect should still be given that this Is a water grave.

agreed care should be used when salvaging these wrecks but when time and nature are against these people they have to do what i call a grab and go salvage they get what they came for without much damage to the wreck and did it within a selected time limit
