Summary

The Civil War shipwreck Modern Greece serves as an example in the development of a theoretical model to analyze value as a means of interpreting shipwreck and cargo abandonment. 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 other maritime sites. Is this framework necessary on newer sites with better historical records? Does it work on older sites where records are unavailable or nonexistent?
