Underwater archaeologists explore a wreck off Madagascar that may be the Serapis.

The MUA is pleased to announce the start of the Serapis Project Journal.  Underwater archaeologists working off the coast of Madagascar are investigating a wreck which may prove to be the Serapis, a vessel that was involved in the fiercest ship to ship naval confrontation during the American Revolution. The battle between the Bonhomme Richard, commanded by John Paul Jones, and the British HMS Serapis was a high point in American naval arms during the Revolution.  You can read the journal on the MUA by clicking here:
