ON LAKE MICHIGAN NEAR POVERTY ISLAND, Mich. (AP) - A team of explorers has begun a close examination of a site in northern Lake Michigan that may be the resting place of the Griffin, a 17th century ship.
U.S. and French experts began opening a pit Saturday near Poverty Island, at the spot where team leader Steve Libert found a large timber wedged into the lake bottom in 2001. He believes it's part of the ship commanded by French explorer La Salle, which disappeared in 1679.
By late afternoon, technicians had removed 3 feet of sediment and found what project manager Ken Vrana described as a "cultural artifact." He declined to elaborate.
By Sunday, Libert hopes to reach what could be a large object that's appeared on sonar. The Associated Press is aboard a boat accompanying the explorers.
