A project to excavate a warship wrecked in the Solent in 1758 has won lottery funding support. HMS Invincible - built by the French in 1744 and captured by the British in 1747 - is believed to be one of the most significant warships ever built. Teams of archaeologists have already dived on the wreck and it is hoped hundreds of artefacts can be retrieved and put on public display. Development funding of £16,400 has been awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
