Maritime Stewards of the Bahamas: The Highbourne Cay Experiment (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Aviva S Pollack. Robin Galloso.

The Converging Worlds project was so named for many reasons, including the initial goal of incorporating the diverse public, both visiting and local to Highbourne Cay, into the core functioning of the cultural preservation project. For decades, the Bahamas has seen its cultural heritage exported by outsiders for personal interest removing any possibility for community involvement and public archaeology. The authors worked to change this trend through outreach, public education, and cultural...


Mechanical Scanning Sonar: 21st Century Documentation of 19th Century Shipwrecks (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Christopher Sabick.

The Lake Champlain Maritime Museum (LCMM) has been exploring the use of mechanical scanning sonar systems for the documentation of the shipwrecks found within its waters.  These technologies allow for fairly rapid recordation of 3D structures in limited visibility environments.  The LCMM has deployed this technology on two canal boat wrecks to determine its effectiveness in comparison with traditional documentation techniques.  This presentation will review the results of those studies as well...


Not Dead Yet: The Surviving Voice of Wooden Shipbuilding (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nathaniel Howe.

In the Pacific Northwest there is still significant overlap between archaeological material and extant cultural niches.  This overlap enables ethnography and living history to privide critical insight.  For nautical archaeologists, the enigmatic details of early west coast ship construction may be explained by the handful of shipwrights who still work on the region's commercial wooden fishing fleet today.  These tradesmen, however, are the last of their kind.  The wooden fleet is dwindling and...

Public Nautical Archaeology of the Phoenix (II) and City Place Schooner Projects (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Carolyn Kennedy.

This is an abstract from the "Shipwrecks and the Public: Getting People Engaged with their Maritime History" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Two recent shipwreck projects, the Phoenix (II) steamboat project in Lake Champlain and the City Place Schooner project in Toronto, focused on the research and reconstruction of these two 1820s-built wrecks, but additionally placed strong emphasis on public archaeology. The outreach initiatives utilized...


Re-excavating the Highbourne Cay Shipwreck: The Converging Worlds Project Overview (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nicholas C. Budsberg.

The Converging Worlds project focuses on the presence of the earliest surviving shipwreck in the Americas; a shipwreck thought to be representative of the first vessels to routinely cross the Atlantic, the first to circumnavigate the globe, and the harbingers of the modern globalized economy we have today.  However, amidst this Euro-centric perspective of events, these vessels were also the carriers of disease, mass enslavement, imperialism, and identicide.  The Highbourne Cay Shipwreck in the...


Shipboard Life aboard Phoenix II: Conserving and Interpreting the Artifacts from Lake Champlain’s Fifth Steamboat (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Amelia J Hammond.

This is an abstract from the "Shipwrecks and the Public: Getting People Engaged with their Maritime History" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. From 2014 to 2016, researchers from Texas A&M University carried out an investigation of a submerged archaeological site in Lake Champlain, Vermont. The site, Shelburne Shipyard, contained four steamboat wrecks from the nineteenth century. The study of the earliest of these steamboats, Phoenix II, yielded...


The Wreck of the Warwick: History and final analysis of an early 17th-century Virginia Company ship. (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Katie Bojakowski. Piotr T Bojakowski.

The Warwick which carried the new governor, settlers, their possession, tools, and provisions across the Atlantic to the nascent Bermuda colony in 1619 sank during a hurricane while at anchorage in Castle Harbour. Over the course of four field seasons, a team of archaeologists, students, and volunteers excavated and recorded the Warwick’s hull. The remains of the Warwick are one of the largest and most articulated fragments of an early 17th century English ship. Notwithstanding the historical...
