Confidentiality Assured

We understand that you may have reservations in making contact with us. However, given the laws governing historical maritime artefacts, we are also taking a risk communicating with you. 

Artefacts are precious and over time many items have been lost, melted down or simply thrown into the trash. We seek to record both digital images of artefacts and to document stories of discovery, before such precious information is lost forever.  

The GDRG is a private research group.  We are not affiliated with any Government Department or past 'treasure hunters.'  We are a group of passionate scientists, with a scientific method, and with luck we hope to shed some light on the fate of the 68 survivors marooned on the coast of Western Australia in 1656.

I appeal to you, if you have an artefact, have a story to tell, or know someone that does, please contact me for a confidential discussion.


Support the Gilt Dragon Research Group....

Since 2010, the Gilt Dragon Research Group have dedicated ourselved to determining the ultimate fate of the Gilt Dragon sixty eight. 

After 360 years the trail is cold.  Clues are hard to find.  Our quest is labour intensive and the discovery and translation of ancient documents is expensive. 

We have personally invested tens of thousands of dollars into both research and equipment. Years of our lives have gone into this quest.  We are close to concluding this passion project and we need your financial assistance to complete our work.  

We have had incredible success and we would like to publish our conclusions. 

Help determine the fate of the Git Dragon sixty eight!
