Maritime Lecture Series: The Robert's Cove Wreck- Combining Archaeological and Historic Research to Identify a Shipwreck

Event published by Michigan Maritime Museum

January 22, 2020
6:30pm - 7:30pm


260 Dyckman Ave
South Haven

Speaker: Wayne Lusardi, State Maritime Archaeologist
Shipwrecks, particularly those in near shore, shallow water environments, are often fragmented to a point where identification is challenging, if not impossible. Extensive information about a shipwreck can be collected archaeologically, though a complete historic record of the vessel cannot be made until the site is positively identified. The Robert's Cove wreck in Lake Huron is a case study in the process of using archaeology and historic research to identify a shipwreck, thus combining two bodies of data to give a more complete account of a previously unknown shipwreck. $8 Adults, $7 Seniors, Free for Museum Members.
