Museum of Underwater Archaeology: The Sloop Industry

8/21/2014 7:00:00 AM
Learn about the cost of maintaining a maritime empire in America by considering the wreck of the British sloop Industry, which sank off the coast of Saint Augustine in 1764. The loss of the ship along with her cargo demonstrates that British control of the seas was never cheap, either in peace or in war. View salvage from the wreck—cast-iron cannons, shot, axes, files, and handsaws—and the background story of an episode in the Britain's struggle to protect newly won territory ceded to her at the end of the French and Indian (or Seven Years') War.
