Since 2016 I carry out research of postmedieval wrecks on behalf of the State Archaeology Department of Schleswig-Holstein. At the moment I am writing a research grant application to carry out further research and to publish the wrecks properly.
The following wrecks are part of this project, which is still in planning. Several interim reports have been published already:
- The Hörnum Odde wreck of ca. 1690, discovered in 2016 on Sylt
- The Japsand wreckage of ca. 1609, discovered 2017 near Hallig Hooge
- The Süderoogsand wreck of ca. 1733, discovered 2020 near Hallig Süderoog
- Another unknown wooden wreck of the Süderoogsand, likewise discovered in 2020, but not investigated yet
