Bed Load: An Archaeological Investigation of the Sediment Matrix at the H.L. Hunley Site (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434314] Heather Brown.

Hunley sank, after detonating a torpedo below Union blockader USS Housatonic. It came to rest approximately four nautical miles off the coast of Charleston, South Carolina, in less than 10 m of water and was subsequently buried beneath roughly 1 m of sediment.

GIS and the CSS Georgia Recovery Project (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434942] William J. Wilson.

Visualizing the distribution of artifacts at the CSS Georgia site was a challenge due to the vast amount of material recorded and recovered. To assist in this, a GIS was created which incorporated data gathered from diver reconnaissance and recovery operations. First, unit sketches and notes were scanned and georectified. Later, artifacts positioned from the sketches and ultra-short baseline (USBL) readings were digitized and organized according to type. This allowed the archaeologists to...

A Model for Analyzing Ship and Cargo Abandonment Using Economic and Utilitarian Values (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434679] Chelsea R. Freeland.

This model outlines a set of multiple hypotheses to test the economic and utilitarian values associated with the abandonment of a large volume of blockade-runner cargo from this vessel. This project identifies the possibilities for expanding this theoretical framework to address the abandonment of shipwrecks, cargos, and...
