Basin Harbor Wreck Field School 2018
Author(s): Mason Parody
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.
The 2018 Lake Champlain Maritime Museum field school returns to the wreck site at Basin Harbor. Despite not yet having a ship identification nor knowledge of the exact type of vessel which lies at the bottom of the marina, this season’s work consisted of further excavation and documentation of the site by photogrammetric modeling as well as by traditional methods. This paper reviews the existing body of research on the wreck and the field school’s most recent contributions to our understanding of the ship’s construction and usage. Furthermore, this paper discusses the public communication employed by the field school to raise awareness of the wreck and of nautical archaeology on Lake Champlain as a whole.
