Marine archaeology The marine archaeologists at the Maritime Museum preserve wrecks and other maritime archaeological remains. What does a marine archaeologist do? A marine archaeologist is specialised in archaeological finds that are in the water or close to it. Wrecks in the Baltic Sea Nowhere else in the world are there so many well-preserved timber wrecks as in the Baltic Sea. Remains of about 20 000 ships or smaller craft have been discovered.
