Smuggled: An illegal history of journeys to Australia


Join maritime archaeologist Dr James Hunter as he shares archaeological research related to South Australian, an English barque wrecked in South Australia's Encounter Bay in 1837. Learn how the vessel was lost in plain sight, and was largely forgotten until its location was revealed by the South Australian Immigrant and Labour Shipwrecks (SAILS) project through investigation of contemporary logbooks, correspondence, artwork, and other documents.

You'll also get a sneak peek at the artwork for a graphic novel Dr Hunter is co-authoring with Professor Holger Deuter (University of Applied Sciences, Kaiserlautern) to tell the wreck's surprising stories.
