UConn researchers documented the ballast stones that may be from the 200-year-old wreckage of the Young Anaconda, a privateer sunk by the British in 1814 during the Raid on Essex where the British burned and sank 27 ships. The stones were discovered on the banks of the Ct. River in Old Saybrook within site of the Essex battle. This latest discovery is part of the research being done into the famous raid by Jerry Roberts, the battlefield historian on the project.
