UB-12 off Ramsgate: Marine Geophysical Survey and Archaeological Report

Front cover for UB12 off Ramsgate Marine Geophysical Survey and Archaeological Report

Project 7071

By Laura Andrews, Debra Shefi

This report covers a geophysical survey carried out at a location off Ramsgate thought to be the potential point of loss of First World War German Submarine UB-12. This submarine was lost after departing Zebrugge on a mine laying mission in August 1918. The exact circumstances of the loss - discussed in the report - are unclear and there is an alternative wreck site off Flanders. The survey off Ramsgate found 11 sites of archaeological potential, but none could conclusively be demonstrated to be the wreck of UB-12.

Wessex Archaeology were commissioned by Historic England to carry out the project.
