Glenn Grieco

The construction of models of ship remains is a tool that can be used to understand information derived from archaeological and historical research. Glenn Grieco, a graduate of the Nautical Archaeology Program at Texas A&M University, is a professional ship modeler.

Glenn recently completed a model of the War of 1812 American brig Jefferson. Previous models have included two models of the 17th century French ship La Belle, one of La Belle's cannons, including the carriage, sections of the Western river steamboat Heroine and her steam engine, and a working capstan model.

To view reports on each model, please follow the links at the top of the page.
