In 2015, the Naval History and Heritage Command Underwater Archaeology (UA) Branch received the remains of ROYAL SAVAGE, a Revolutionary War vessel which sank in Lake Champlain in 1776 following service in the Battle of Valcour Island. UA archaeologists and conservators are employing a combination of traditional methods and modern technology to document, research and preserve this important piece of U.S. Navy history. UA conservators are also working to conserve and re-treat more than 1,300 associated artifacts, employing spectroscopic and elemental analysis of certain components of the artifact collection to identify and help mitigate previous cleaning campaigns.
