Spike Clump Conservation!
The crew of the Magruder found a very large clump of spikes on the Atocha trail which Senior Conservator John Corcoran has begun to work on. The large slab of encrusted spikes had to be carefully separated into more managable sections in order to fit into the wet storage tanks. Corcoran has so far separated 380 individual spikes from the main clump. An official count of the total number of artifacts will not be available until all of the spikes have all been conserved but based on what he has done so far Corcoran estimates there will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 spikes. Look how large the original conglomeration was!
