Saving Alexandria’s 18th-century merchant ship

This will be the site’s blog, where I’ll periodically update visitors with research progress and what’s on my mind having to do with maritime history at the moment.

In just a few days, I’ll be giving a talk for the City of Alexandria on the importance of conserving the remains of this vessel–which are so rare in our part of the world. In fact, the remains are already being conserved–now we just have to pay for it!

Meanwhile, if you’d like to learn more about the find, and the ongoing work, and would like to contribute (every little bit helps), please visit this link.

From that page, you can go to the conservation project’s page at Texas A&M University.

And check back here next week!
