Colossus sank in 1798 off the Isles of Scilly. She was a 74 gun war ship. This is the story of the wreck and its salvage over the years, told by the divers that discovered it. Colossus carried an important and valuable cargo, owned by Sir William Hamilton.

The talk will include a 40 minute DVD made by the divers, who will also tell us about current diving and salvage projects around Scilly.
