Speaker Joseph Hoyt of Monitor National Marine Sanctuary.
There will be two presentations on Thursday, October 1st. The first will take place at 11am at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in Hatteras. The second (duplicate) presentation will take place at 6pm at the UNC Coastal Studies Institute in Wanchese. In addition, the programs held at the UNC Coastal Studies Institute will be streamed live at http://csi.northcarolina.edu/ustream.
This event is part of the 2015 series Our Underwater Heritage: Maritime Archaeology Projects in Coastal North Carolina. The series highlights a diversity of topics in local underwater archaeology, from the reconstruction of pivotal battles, iconic shipwrecks, and critical industries of yesteryear, to the challenges involved in the study and preservation of our maritime history. The result of a collaboration between the UNC Coastal Studies Institute (Maritime Heritage Program), East Carolina University (Program in Maritime Studies, Department of History), and the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum (NC Department of Cultural Resources), the program of presentations will see scholars from East Carolina University, the National Park Service, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and Florida’s Bureau of Archaeological Research travel to the area each month from January to May and September to December to give presentations regarding ongoing or recently completed maritime archaeological investigations. The program is made possible with the assistance of a grant from the Outer Banks Community Foundation.
