They Didn't Listen
This chapter examines the lessons that can be learned from legal and conservation issues surrounding the HMS Fowey shipwreck found at Legare Anchorage. It discusses the parallels between the exoneration of Francis William Drake for the loss of HMS Fowey and the victory of George Fischer and the National Park Service in court. It also highlights the importance of the work of archaeologists in the preservation of historic shipwrecks and stresses that the days of defending the notion of “finders keepers” and “seat of the pants” archaeology are long gone.
