Meetings & Minutes
The next NVSPS membership meeting will be a picnic on June 18 at 11:00 AM at the Fairfax Yacht Club ( 10721 Old Colchester Road, Lorton). Details and registration are here. Join us!
The July membership meeting will be on July 13 at Boat U/S at 7:00 PM.
The speaker will be Benjamin Skolnik, an Archaeologist for the City of Alexandria.
Last December, archaeologists working on Alexandria's Waterfront discovered an 18th century ship that had been sunk and buried more than 200 years ago. For a week in mid-April, archaeologists removed the ship's timbers from their storage tanks for a week of documentation and study in preparation for removing them to a long-term conservation facility. City of Alexandria Archaeologist Benjamin Skolnik will talk about the circumstances and efforts behind the discovery, excavation, recovery and preservation of this 200+ year old vessel.
Benjamin Skolnik has a background in digital research with historic maps and using laser scanning to record archaeological sites. He has a B.A. in Anthropology and History from the College of William & Mary and a Master's of Applied Anthropology from the University of Maryland. He recently participated in the recovery of the 1755 John Carlyle Warehouse and the 18th century ship from Alexandria's Waterfront.
