More about the Revolutionary-era Ship found in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia

Via AlexTV, in December 2015, Alexandria archaeologists uncovered the remains of the hull of a fifty-foot vessel on the Indigo Hotel construction site at 220 S. Union Street in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.

Scuttled sometime in the late eighteenth century, the ship served as the framework for part of the landfill process that extended the waterfront out to the deep channel of the Potomac River.
