Abstract:

The story of the history, discovery, and scientific study of a 1758 radeau-class warship called LAND TORTOISE that was found in Lake George, New York, USA in 1990. The French & Indian War (Seven Years War) vessel lies in 107 ft. of water and is intact. The DVD documentary covers historical background of the war and warship, side scan sonar technology including an interview with side scan sonar pioneer Marty Klein (Klein Associates, Inc.), the multi-year underwater archaeological mapping of the shipwreck, creating a seamless photomosaic of the shipwreck, establishing a shipwreck preserve for diver visitation, nominating shipwrecks to the National Register of Historic Places and as a National Historic Landmark, and the threat of zebra mussels to historic shipwrecks. The DVD is excellent as a tool to inform divers and non-divers about underwater archaeology and remote sensing.
