AKRF Publishes World Trade Center Ship Discovery Video

Over ten years ago, while monitoring the construction of a new subterranean vehicle security center and tour bus parking facility at the World Trade Center site as part of the redevelopment effort, archaeologists at AKRF investigated the uncovered hull of a late-18th-century ship ​– a rare occurrence in densely-developed Lower Manhattan. The discovery garnered international media attention covered by National Geographic, The New York Times, CNN, and BBC, among others. We welcome you to learn more about the discovery, investigation, and preservation effort in this short video produced by AKRF.
