The sinking of Dutch ship Rooswijk on Goodwin Sands

A "treasure trove" of items and stories are expected to be uncovered as a shipwreck is fully excavated after more than 250 years.

Historic England is working with the Dutch government to discover more about the Dutch East India Company's Rooswijk vessel, which lies off the Kent coast.

Historic England has created a short animation to show what happen to the ship.
