Work Starts On The Wreck Site

This second page shows the team with the great assistance of the St. Christopher-Nevis Defence Force and Coastguard, clearing the wreck site. The visible remains of the great timbers were "dusted down" by hand fanning. The grid was placed over the wreck centred along the presumed keel line. The modern contamination to the site was placed to one side of the wreck. These were the railway lines which had been placed in the area a number of years ago, in an attempt to make a jetty near by. The five cannons nearby were located and the position marked.
