The conservation of historic ships is a constant challenge, and ships like the Royal Navy’s flagship HMS Victory present a unique combination of issues that are not otherwise found in museum environments. The Deathwatch beetle (DWB) population on HMS Victory is so well-established that it is necessary to investigate their behaviour in order to understand the extent of damage that has occurred over the last century before effective conservation strategies can be implemented. This fully-funded studentship will bring together non-invasive imaging and sound recording techniques with new approaches in digital heritage storytelling to investigate DWB activity of Victory and communicate the findings to museum visitors and the wider conservation community.
