War of 1812 Shipwreck Archaeology (video)

With all the recent Civil War hoopla the bicentennial of America’s “second war of independence” has been pushed to the sidelines. But not here! Check out this quick video describing the ongoing work in Maryland’s Patuxent River where archaeologists have been excavating the suspected flagship of Commodore Joshua Barney’s scuttled flotilla. Ah, the viz reminds me of home. In any case, I’m looking forward to reading more about this project, especially as they gear up for the 1813 anniversary.
