Shipwreck. The Loss of the Metta Catharina in 1786

By Ian Skelton

A fascinating history of the Wreck of the Metta Catharina

In 1973, off Plymouth Sound, divers found the wreck of Fraumetta Catharina, which had floundered in a storm in December 1786 on its way from the Danish port of Flensburg. This book describes the problems of the diving team and the story of the ship’s unique cargo – Russian Reindeer Leather, remarkably preserved by the sea bed for over 200 years
