It’s been a while since our last post, and we sure have been busy. Both the Discovery and Good Fortune teams have been on the water many days scanning (i.e., remote sensing), SeaSearching, diving, and identifying the trail of artifacts leading away from the Ring Site in Area 2. We are also actively working with the State Division of Historical Resources (DHR) to confirm that our previously disclosed Ring Site is, in fact, a Shipwreck Site so that we can continue our work there in earnest. Check out the pictures of the three deadeye rings lying next to each other on the Ring Site. Dozens of artifacts are on the surface and buried in that area, according to our disclosure to DHR. It’s very exciting! As you can see, our project Archaeologist, Dr. Baer, is actively involved in our fieldwork diving outside the Ring Site with our team to tag and confirm isolated anomalies (the State calls it ground-truthing). We are gaining a better understanding of the relationship between the isolated debris scattered in the Ring Site to other previously found artifacts. Based on the current data, his work has led us to focus on just a few specific areas for this season. We conducted our previously planned Juno Beach site visit and mapped out the plan for SeaSearcher surveys, including recovery for that area. Additionally, DHR is processing our Juno Beach recovery permit application, and we look forward to getting back to that site this season. Finally, many thanks to our permit compliance, research, and archaeology teams, who have generated absolutely mountains of paperwork for the State over the past several months. This incredible work supports all of our activities.
