ItemThe V.O. C. Ship Batavia 1629, Report on the Third Season of Excavation(Australian Archaeological Association, 1975-10)A report covering the first and second seasons of excavation of the Dutch Indiaman Batavia by the Western Australian Museum has already been published by Green (1975). This paper concentrates on the third season of excavation, 21st December, 1974 to the 2nd June, 1975 and deals with recording techniques, excavation methods and the results achieved. The main task during the 1975 season was to raise the 35 square metres of timber from the after part of the ship at the southern end of the wreck site. Once this work was completed the aim was to continue the excavation in the northern area, towards the bow half of the ship.
