Identifying Submerged Sites in Ohio’s Far Northeast Corner, or, Where’s Ashtabula?
This is an abstract from the "Submerged Cultural Resources and the Maritime Heritage of the Great Lakes" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.
Ohio’s maritime heritage is fairly underrepresented in documentation at the Ohio State Historic Preservation Office, with an even greater dearth of information about submerged cultural resources in northeastern Ohio. When Hurricane Sandy funds became available for Ashtabula County, the Ohio History Connection proposed a survey of the county’s Lake Erie shoreline and nearshore waters to help identify submerged cultural resources that could be impacted by natural disasters and future development. The evolution of the project, selection of specific target areas, and goals of the work will be discussed.
