Letter of Support


CAPE TOWN – 12 October 2019 – In August, the AIMURE applied for a permit for an additional survey and a full excavation of the shipwreck of ‘Haarlem’.

Although some issues regarding a full excavation still have to be resolved, in a letter of 3 October 2019 the Maritime and Underwater Cultural Heritage unit (MUCH) of the South African Heritage Resources Agency (SAHRA) indicated their support for the proposed project:

“For these reasons, the MUCH unit at SAHRA would like to indicate our support for the proposed project and encourage  the applicant to pursue further research and the sourcing of funds to make it a reality.”
