FISH Maritime Craft Types Thesaurus

"Craft types which survive as wrecks for the RCHME's maritime record and can be used to describe types of ship. English Heritage takes a leading role in setting standards for recording the built and buried heritage. By setting standards that can be adopted by everyone, we can make sure that all records are consistent. In other words, if everyone uses the same words to describe the same monument, archaeological object, building material, etc, then anyone using this common language can easily index, retrieve and understand these records.
