During weeks 5 and 6, I needed to do more in depth research, specifically focusing on data found in shipping records of merchant shipping companies during World War II. These records can be tricky to find, and in some cases classified and not published on the internet. To do this research I needed to visit the National Archives and The Library of Congress, located in Washington, DC. Incorporating the information from these documents provides a stronger case in explaining the over significance of the shipwreck, both during their career and potential for future archaeological research.
