The Sloop Boscawen and the King’s Shipyard:
Mid-18th Century Shipwrecks in Lake Champlain
The sloop Boscawen was built during the Seven Years’ War as part of a British campaign to counter the French presence in the Champlain Valley. Using Boscawen as a focal point, this presentation explores how colonial shipwrights designed, built, and rigged early sailing vessels for use on Lake Champlain and how Boscawen’s hull construction compares to other watercraft built in northeastern North America during the eighteenth century.
The Cape Gelidonya Shipwreck:
Old Ship, New Methods
The Late Bronze Age shipwreck at Cape Gelidonya, Turkey, where George Bass started it all in 1960, keeps on giving. Seven members of the current research team briefly present what they are learning from the discoveries made on the seabed in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2010, and in the laboratories by means of scientific and 3D analysis.
