Arthur B. Cohn will present, Shipwrecks: What Lies Beneath: Stories from Seneca Lake. The program will outline the history of the Seneca Lake region and, based on his 4-decades of Lake Champlain experience, the logical expectation that shipwrecks would be present. The talk will focus on the first two seasons of the Seneca Lake survey and the significant shipwreck discoveries that will add to our understanding of the canal era when horses and mules walked the towpath.
Cohn is the Principle Investigator for the Spitfire (1776) Project, Seneca Lake Survey Project, and Director Emeritus of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum.
