Special lecture on new discoveries on Alexandria’s 18th-century ship by Benjamin Skolnik, Alexandria Archaeology. Find out the latest news about the ship excavated last year on the Alexandria Waterfront. Reservations are required and available while supplies last from www.shop.alexandriava.gov. Select Save our Ship Lecture to make your reservation.

Once completed, please make a minimum donation of $10 to Save Our Ship through www.spring2action.razoo.com/story/Archaeologysos. All proceeds benefit the Ship Conservation Fund.

Space is limited. Book today and take full advantage of this unique opportunity to meet Alexandria Archaeologists and hear the latest research on the historic ship.

Early Alexandrians sunk the ship in the Potomac mudflats over 200 years ago. Archaeologists unearthed it, temporarily saving it from destruction.  The ship is currently stabilized and awaiting conservation. Now, we need your help to preserve this fragile vessel for future generations!

For more information about the ship’s excavation, stabilization, and media coverage, visit www.alexandriava.gov/87317
