During the period 4 - 17 May 1992, a team of maritime archaeologists and conservators from the Western Australian Maritime Museum, an historical archaeologist from the University of Western Australia, Maritime Archaeological Association of Western Australia (MAAWA) and student volunteers, undertook a field trip to the Houtman Abrolhos. The field-work was designed to implement the strategies incorporated in two proposals submitted to the Department of the Arts, Sport, the Environment and Territories (DASET) as part of the Western Australian Museum's 1992-93 submission for funding for work relating to historic shipwrecks protected under the Commonwealth Historic Shipwrecks Act 1976.
