There is for years a misunderstanding about the SS Archimedes Wreck. About 1970 a wreck is found in the Oostvoorne Lake; this wreck is named Archimedes, however it can not be the SS Archimedes. Historical SS Archimedes 1838 built by Francis Pettit Smith was from wood and the wreck is from iron.
Archimedes sunk 1864 ; Dutch wreck register (recorded 1936 ) informs 1884 as date of sinking. Also recorded very near wreck 'Germania' , a fisher ship from Belgium sunk 1906.
In fact on the location in the Oostvoorne Lake there are 2 wrecks. Wreck of the steam-freighter Littlebeck from West-Hartlepoole sunk 1884 and the wreck of the Ostend(Belgium) Fish-steamer Germaine sunk 1903.
3 km away in Distance in the Slufter Area in 1989 there has been found the wreck Slufter4 ( SL4). This wreck has lots of data equal with that of SS Archimedes ( same region, year, dimensions and coal on board ). However steam engine and historical screw haven't been found, so it's not sure that SL4 has been SS Archimedes. However the chance to find nearby another wreck also with all this data reduces to nill. There is a painting in the museum of the city of Brielle with the sinking of SS Archimedes at that region in 1864; so it's for sure SS Archimedes sunk there in 1864.
