On October 16, 2019, the 360 years since the wreck of the Dutch merchant ship Milkmaid (Melckmeyt) on a remote Icelandic island during a clandestine trade mission.

Since its discovery in 1992, it remains as the oldest shipwreck identified in Iceland, and its lower hull remained unusually well preserved in the icy waters of the country.

To mark the anniversary, digital archeology specialists from the University of Flinders (Australia) have collaborated with maritime archaeologists from the University of Iceland to launch a 360º virtual immersion on the wreck.

It is a realistic virtual experience, and includes a digital reconstruction (on the cover image) of what the ship might have looked like on the seabed moments after it sank.

The three minute virtual immersion was created for an exhibition at the Reykjavik Maritime Museum, but now it has been published on YouTube and is available for anyone with VR (or with a Smartphone or Tablet) to see it.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
