Summary

The upcoming exhibition of the Storm Wreck, a Revolutionary War shipwreck in St. Augustine, Florida, is two-fold. As with traditional archaeology exhibits, it will share how historical documents and artifacts from the shipwreck tell the story of British Loyalists who, after evacuating Charleston, South Carolina and leaving behind all they knew and taking with them only what they treasured and needed most, arrived in St. Augustine only to run aground and have many of their precious few items buried on the ocean floor. The Discovery Lab part of the exhibit will allow visitors to participate in the methods and processes of archaeological discovery through hands-on stations including the Navigation Station, X-ray Station, Survey Station, Maritime Archaeology Station, and more. This paper provides a "sneak peak" of this exciting exhibition opening in Spring 2015 at the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum!
