Since 2000, excavation of the sub by Clemson scientists has uncovered more than 1,500 artifacts and the remains of all eight crew members. WLCC staff use advanced technology to preserve and document this national treasure for future generations.
WLCC archaeologists continue to study and document the H. L. Hunley, while the conservation team work with research scientists to develop revolutionary new techniques to preserve historic iron.
Located in North Conservation, the Friends of the Hunley lead tours on weekends where visitors can see the submarine in its 75,000 gallon tank and learn about its disappearance and subsequent discovery! An interactive exhibition space explains the techniques used to conserve the submarine and its artifacts.
