Students in Mr. Thomas and Mr. Lagerbom's Marine Studies class recently visited a shipwreck to conduct a maritime archaeological investigation. Their assignment was to determine the ship's age or date, type or kind of vessel, when and how was it used as well as its subsequent fate. Visible parts of the ship were identified and measured and the surrounding area searched for parts and items potentially associated with the wreck. Students will produce a detailed scale drawing of the remains and their hypotheses and evidence.
