“Not the Gaspee”–Two Shipwrecks in Occupessatuxet Cove, Warwick: A Study of Site Stability and Disintegration

October 10, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Pilgrim Senior Center
27 Pilgrim Parkway
Warwick, RI 02888 United States


The Warwick team of the Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Project (RIMAP) will present the results of its five-year study of two shipwrecks in Occupessatuxet Cove in a public talk. Though these ships are near where HMS Gaspee was burned by Rhode Island citizens in 1772, neither can be that historic vessel, and so the project has been named: “Not the Gaspee.” Though these ships have not yet been firmly identified, their study has been useful as a comparison of how sites disintegrate or remain stable, based on specific construction details and local conditions. This RIMAP team consists largely of local Warwick volunteers, organized by State Rep. Joe McNamara, trained by RIMAP, and under the direction of Principal Investigator, Dr. Kathy Abbass.
