The analysis of the Corolla Wreck, presented an opportunity to study early 17th century wooden ship remains in the context of early European settlement of Atlantic North America. Numerous research questions, stemming from archaeological and historical observations, sought to answer whether the extant remains of the wreck could offer conclusions as to the shipwreck’s origins when compared to contemporary wreck sites. Historical research provides possible answers as to the origin and purpose of this wreck, and what part it may have played in Atlantic commerce and colonization. Presenter: Daniel Mark Brown, South Carolina Institute for Archaeology and Anthropology. Free program. 11 a.m. The program will also be streamed LIVE during a 6 p.m. online presentation at http://csi.northcarolina.edu/ustream.
