Artifacts from a 17th Century shipwreck found off the Dorset coast, England, have gone on display.

Artefacts raised from the seabed and on display include two leather shoes, musket balls, kitchen utensils and an apothecary jar.

The most unusual find is a rare wooden carving of a merman, which Ms Palma believes would have adorned the rear of the ship.

She said: “In the last couple of years, the Swash Channel Wreck has constituted a fundamental element in the UK’s national and international archaeological maritime landscape.
