A Reminder of Russian North America
A research team in Alaska believe that they have discovered the site where the iconic Russian research ship Neva was wrecked.
The team led by former Alaska State Archaeologist, David McMahan found the site near Sitka, where the survivors struggled to stay alive through the harsh arctic weather.
The story invokes memories of Russian attempts, complete with Indian wars, to plant a Russian colony in North America.
