Toisa Vigilant arrived back at Port Fourchon, Louisiana around 2:30 this morning concluding the field work component of our project. This has been an exciting and wonderful archaeological investigation of an important period of Gulf of Mexico history. However, the project does not end here! Conservation of the artifacts may take up to a year and once they complete this process, they will be transported back to Louisiana where they will go on display at the Louisiana State Museum. In addition, a final report will be made detailing the methodology, artifacts, and conservation of the project. All of these components will help archaeologists, historians, and the people of the Gulf Coast better understand their maritime history. Please keep checking this website for future updates!
