Hosted by The Filey Bay Bonhomme Richard  Group

Over 20,000 artefacts were recovered from the wreck and this presented a formidable problem for Charles Fithian and Claudia Leister.  in addition to items of shipboard life, personal articles were recovered and the pictures below represent a very small selection of the wonderful artefacts that have been preserved.  For a more detailed account of these, it is recommended that the book by Donald G Shomette is read or that contact is made with the State of Delaware Historical and Cultural Affairs.
