In September of 1679, LaSalle’s vessel the Griffon went missing with a cargo of furs after setting sail from Green Bay in western Lake Michigan.  The wreck of the Griffon is perhaps the most sought-after shipwreck in the Great Lakes.  Many claims of discovery have been made over the years.  A recent claim has received a great deal of media attention, but archaeological evidence does not support the contention that the wreck has been found. Presented by Dean L. Anderson, State Archaeologist, Michigan State Historic Preservation Office.
