Folks in the Houston area will want to mark their calendars for next Tuesday, May 13 at 7 p.m., when Justin Parkoff and Jessica Stika speak about the USS Westfield preservation project. The Westfield wreckage lay in the murky waters of the Texas City ship channel until 2009, when the dis-articulated artifact debris field was recovered in Texas’ largest marine archaeology rescue project to date. Although the hull itself was not preserved, learn how the experts at Texas A & M University’s Conservation Research Laboratory have used modern technology to glean clues from this scant archaeological evidence. Admission is free and refreshments will be served.
