Recently, the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands published the final report of the Maritime Heritage International programme. It describes the policy set up, activities and results achieved in the period 2017-2021.

The programme aimed, in cooperation with partners, to set up and implement effective management of Dutch shipwrecks in foreign waters, to make the data and knowledge gained available to others, and to foster understanding of the past and create space for wonder.

The need for international policy and implementation is the number of Dutch shipwrecks scattered around the world. There are over 1,600 of them, according to a recent wreck count.

The extensive activity overview in the report starts on page 43 with the wreck of the frigate Huis te Warmelo in Finland.
