(July 1, 2015) – Robert Neyland, Underwater Archaeology Branch head with Naval History and Heritage Command, answers questions at a ceremony during which the mayor of Harrisburg, Pa., formally returned artifacts and timber recovered from Revolutionary War-era schooner Royal Savage to the Navy for preservation and conservation on July 1. Royal Savage served in the American Lake Champlain Squadron under Benedict Arnold during the American Revolution before running aground and being burned by the British in October 1776. Now in the possession of the U.S. Navy, the Naval History and Heritage Command will preserve and study the artifacts with the intent for future exhibition.
