Presenter: Hannah Fleming, maritime archaeologist at The Mariners’ Museum
About the presentation: Finding archaeological artifacts often leads to more questions than answers. Dirty, sometimes fragmentary, and often out of place, a new find begs the questions: What is it? Who used it? Why is this here? Where was it made?
This talk traces the history of one such USS Monitor artifact, the Resurgam bottle, otherwise known as the phoenix bottle, from production and use, through loss and recovery, to identification and new life in The Mariners' Museum.
Viewers are welcome to send Hannah any comments or questions to the presenters, and she will answer following the presentation.
