Summary

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.

In 2018, Coastal Environments, Inc., (CEI) conducted a targeted cultural resources survey in the Lake Erie waters of Ashtabula County, Ohio, a study area covering ca. 30 square miles of lake bottom.  The project’s first phase consisted of a geophysical survey at selected locations within the study area.  The second phase involved the selection of ten anomalies for ground truthing, including several high-probability locations for drowned terrestrial sites.  This paper discusses the methodology utilized in selecting survey locations, reviews the findings of the investigation, and offers a brief history of several of the identified shipwrecks.
