Brendan Burke, Underwater Archaeologist with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. Brendan hit the ground running in his new position on July 10, 2021, since starting, six new archaeologist sites have been logged. Brendan challenged all to rethink underwater by rethinking human culture as it relates to waterways. He also reminded us that it is illegal to remove items from underwater archaeological sites. If you find something contact DHR or contact Brendan directly.
