MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE: ARTIFACTS FROM THE SEDIMENTS AT SITE 31CR314, QUEEN ANNE’S REVENGE

Email: [email protected]

The excavation of an eighteenth century shipwreck identified by the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources as Queen Anne’s Revenge, off Beaufort, NC, produced innumerable small artifacts from the sediment. These micro-artifacts provide another layer of evidence, corroborating the current hypotheses regarding the site formation process, namely that the site represents a grounded vessel and that it was exposed to repeated periods of scour and reburial over nearly three hundred years. The evidence provides a model for the formation of shipwreck sites in similar dynamic sand bar environments. Presenter: Franklin H. Price, Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research. 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.
