This Day in Fleet History – February 6, 1968

State archaeologist Carl J. Clauson reported that the wooden remains of a well dug in the sand by survivors of the 1715 Fleet disaster had been uncovered. Sections of wood, almost certainly from the wooden beams of wrecked ships used as casing for a surface well, were excavated. The well was dug a short distance from the main camp. The location of the campsite was discovered by Homer Cato, an amateur archaeologist, in August 1965.
