If These Waters Could Talk: Maritime Archaeology in the St. Clair Flats, presented by maritime archaeologist Daniel Harrison From prehistory to the present, the delta of the St Clair River, aka “The Flats,” has been the scene of intense human activity. Join maritime archaeologist Daniel Harrison in an exploration of this unique and fascinating place through the transformations of the 19th century. The Westward Movement, Civil War, and Industrial Revolution all left lasting marks, as commerce, politics and technology shaped the landscape we see today. Daniel Harrison is a doctoral student in Anthropology at Wayne State University, and a reference librarian at Henry Ford College in Dearborn, Michigan. His 2012 Wayne State Anthropology MA project led to the listing of a submerged road from the War of 1812 on the National Register of Historic Places, and its inclusion in 2014 as a unit of the River Raisin National Battlefield Park. His ongoing research centers on the maritime archaeology of the Great Lakes.
