ECU Maritime Archaeology Graduate students survey of the "Oriental"

ECU Maritime Studies Graduate students have been mapping and documenting the Oriental, a Civil War Federal transport vessel that ran aground and sunk in the waters off Pea Island in 1862. Locally known as the "boiler wreck", the engine of the Oriental can been seen above water some 400 yards off the beach of Pea Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
