SPSNL offered a special shipwreck artifact workshop at The Rooms on Wednesday, March 5. The workshop included a behind-the-scenes tour of the collection of shipwreck artifacts from HMS Sapphire in Bay Bulls, the Speedwell in Trinity and the astrolabe wreck in Isle aux Morts. We also learned about the conservation methods used for underwater artifacts.
Thanks to Elaine Anton, the collections manager at The Rooms who provided a wonderful introduction to their shipwreck artifact collection.
