This chapter examines the National Park Service and Florida State University (FSU) researchers' testing and evaluation of the Legare Anchorage shipwreck in Florida. The project's team members completed a total of 500 hours of underwater research, 372 dives in over 23 days. This team was led by George Fischer, with Richard Vernon as the assistant field director and field crew chiefs David Brewer and Ken Wild. Unlike treasure salvage, the goal of the project was not simply the discovery and recovery of objects per se but understanding the horizontal and vertical juxtaposition of artifacts and their relationship, not only to each other but to the wreck site itself.
