Coming up on October 24!  The Ship That Held Up Wall Street

Join us as Professor Warren Riess takes us through a complete maritime site investigation, from discovery through international study and interpretation, using a colonial merchant ship site as a fascinating example. Known variously as the Wall Street ship, the Ronson ship, or Princess Carolina, the ship and its contents have answered a few questions and posed exciting new ones.

During the past forty years, Dr. Riess’ internationally known research and teaching have focused on the maritime archaeology and history of the Americas. His accomplishments have been the subject of a one-hour television special on PBS and of articles in many newspapers and magazines. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet Professor Riess!

Sponsored by the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA).
