This heavily concreted carronade is one of 10 located during the 2008 expedition. It is the proverbial "smoking gun" - the clue that every archaeologist hopes to find that will positively identify a site. By measuring the inside diameter, archaeologists confirmed that these were 32-pounder carronades, the size used on the USS CHIPPEWA.

Ships that wreck in shallow water tend to break apart due to the force of wind, waves, and ice. Many wrecks dot the shoreline of Thunder Bay, providing great opportunities for snorkeling, kayaking, and recreational diving. Pictured here are the remains of the 1840s sidewheel steamer New Orleans, one of the oldest known wrecks in the sanctuary.

Protected from the high-energy of a shallow water environment, deepwater shipwrecks are often very intact. Such wrecks are true time capsules, providing unique archaeological, historical and recreational opportunities. Pictured here is the 300-foot long bulk freighter Norman, which sank in 1895, resting just outside the current Thunder Bay sanctuary boundaries.
