The Lighthouse Archaeological Maritime Program (LAMP) Conservation team installed a new case in the Wrecked! Exhibit. This new case replaces the Star Waters mannequin and features one of the muskets recovered from the Storm Wreck, the American Revolution-era shipwreck excavated in 2009. Other artifacts associated with the musket including flintlock, flint, shot and even some paper wadding are also featured.

The team plans to install a second musket in this case. The muskets have undergone conservation with the State of Florida, due to the wood and metal contained in the muskets. Be sure to take a look on your next visit. The new case is located in the basement of the Keepers’ House.
