Del. Archaeologists Wrap-Up Artifact Find
Friday is the last day Delaware archaeologists will recover artifacts from a ship that sank in 1774.

Daniel Griffith leads the Lewes Maritime Archaeology Project. He said he and a team of archaeologists have recovered thousands of items from the Severn in the last two years.

The cargo ship sank 233 years ago off the coast of Delaware. Griffith said it was hauling all kinds of products from Britain to America to be sold.
