Shipwreck Preservation Society of Newfoundland and Labrador (SPSNL). I was very impressed by how professional and well organized the SPSNL has become within their first year of existence. The day after his talk, the underwater archaeologist from Parks led an instructor training program for SPSNL members. If you have any interest in diving or the maritime history of this province, I wholeheartedly encourage you to get in touch with the folks at SPSNL and become a member. They are very conscientious about diving and helping record wrecks without leaving any impact on the archaeological resources. They are positioned to make a very significant contribution to the preservation and promotion of underwater heritage in this Province over the coming years. They got me excited about a side of archaeology that I know very little about. Lori and I have our membership forms on the kitchen table ready to send off.

the drums, I made one
cylinder of laminated wood,
which I have since cut into five individual hoops.
