Missouri River Graveyard of Ships

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 @ 10:00 AM-11:30 AM

On Science Series

Featured Speaker: Steve Dasovich, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology and Sociology, Lindenwood University

For hundreds of ships that have plied the waters of the Missouri River, its murky depths are an underwater tomb. Done in by calamities such as fires, explosions, ice floes and run-ins with toppled trees, the river houses the skeletons of hundreds of wood-devouring, smoke-belching steamboats from the heyday of riverboat steamers.

Join maritime archaeologist and Lindenwood University professor, Dr. Steve Dasovich, for a fascinating look at the science and history of preserving the Missouri River’s Graveyard of Ships.
