The island of Texel, off the north coast of the province of North Holland, The Netherlands, is the first island forming the Texelreede (Texel Roads) which for centuries formed a sheltered haven for ships leaving the many ports in the Zuider Zee. It was particularly busy during the Golden Age, and therefore is also home to many shipwrecks. A recent discovery here of a wardrobe with much of the contents still intact is being lauded.
‘Rarely, if ever, has such a big discovery been made in a maritime context’, says Maarten van Bommel, Professor of Conservation Science and chair of the section Restoration and Conservation of Cultural Heritage at the UvA.” (Source)
