Hunley scientists to try removing cloth

 

Wednesday, April 4, 2001

 

 


     Work inside the Confederate submarine Hunley has greatly slowed down as scientists map the remains found inside and look for ways to remove fragile bits of leather and cloth.
     Project manager Bob Neyland said some of the cloth appears to be silk, which ages well. Three more buttons showing the admiralty anchor that was common in the Confederate Navy also were found, he said.
     Also on Tuesday, the six ribs of the first crewman found were removed and placed in the morgue at the Warren Lasch Conservation Lab in North Charleston.
     The excavation is expected to take several months as scientists work their way to the bottom of the sub.
