Kevin Cullen’s talk will highlight recent maritime archaeology expeditions off Achill Island, Co. Mayo Ireland, as well as new and old discoveries pertaining to Wisconsin’s maritime heritage. He will show how new insights from these disparately connected regions shed light on the foundations of local and global commodity maritime trade, the evolving architecture of historic shipwrecks, ongoing education potentials, tourism opportunities and increased public advocacy for long term preservation.
