Michael Stammers writes about Peter Davies’ pioneering role in the development of nautical archaeology in the region, focusing on two significant achievements – the excavations of the Royal Yacht Mary and the paddle steamer Lady Lansdowne. Stammers argues that Davies’ efforts to ensure material collected from both wreckages was recovered and preserved at museum level influenced sports divers and government legislation, ultimately protecting Britain’s underwater maritime heritage.
