Re: JSTOR: Archaeology under Water
- Oh I very much consider that Herb
I was informed about two years ago that a dugout canoe was cought on
a trout line by a fella my brother-in-law knew before he (the man
that keept the canoe with intensions to sell it) has since died and
now his sister may still have it. This family from the way my brother-
in-law put is very superstitious and believe the canoe was cursed. It
may not be good for archaeological data now, but I could still use it
for Native Awareness projects and guess speakers.
I couldn't tell you how long ago I seen a program, 20/20 or primetime
perhaps, but some guy was harvesting waterloged trees that had sunk
in the depths of the Great Lakes, yet after 150 years or so they were
worth there weight in gold which was around 325.00 once at the time.
The wood was suitable for high dollar musical instruments. If I
recall correctly only this one man has or had the rights to harvest
the wood. At that time my interests as far as history was aroung the
Black Sea which is just as deep as the Great Lakes. Do you know if
fresh water in the open sea is stable for an extended period of time?
I kind of figured it would be somewhat like water in oil or vice
At any rate, I assume the Army Core of Engineers had something to do
with that; somewhat like a redicules 50 year contract permitting a
local Brick company to harvest clay practically through the Ocmulgee
National Monument State Park - which will destroy 3 archaeological
sites as well as knowing that Macon is prone to occasional flooding.
Actually I was trying to organize a down river protest to the
atlantic and walk to Savannah, but I was to late, there wasn't enough
time to do anything.
