Documenting Historic Shipwrecks in the 21st Century: Using New and Old Data to Support Monitoring of the 1733 San Pedro and San Felipe

Summary

This is an abstract from the "POSTER Session 2: Linking Historic Documents and Background Research in Archaeology" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.

In June of 2018, Indiana University’s Center for Underwater Science and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) documented the 1733 San Pedro Underwater Archaeological Preserve and San Felipe shipwreck by using photogrammetry, in conjunction with archival data ranging from 1988 to the current. As the only keepers of this archival data, the University has the ability to monitor both cultural and biological resources by comparing photogrammetric models with data of many formats from the past thirty years. This long-term data is a valuable resource, and by teaming with NOAA, Indiana University has had the opportunity to continue to record and monitor these protected sites. These efforts are aimed at developing a better understanding of how site protection coincides with tourism and public education in order to support historic shipwrecks along the Florida Keys for generations to come.
