Work has begun on the large encrustion recovered from the stern area of the Mardi Gras Shipwreck. It is placed in a vat which allows the conservator to lift the encustation out of the vat to work on it while a webcam broadcast the on-going work to the Internet World. Check back here to check on the progress and to see what was found in it. The home Mardi Gras website will be updated periodically to more thoroughly report on the discoveries and their signifcance to the overall interpretation of the ship that sank in the Gulf of Mexico in the Gulf of Mexico some 190 years ago.
