2019 – The search for The Leusden

In September 2019, a maritime archaeological expedition was conducted to the wreck of the 18th-century Amsterdam slave ship The Leusden, off the coast of French Guiana at the mouth of the Marowijne River. The expedition was a joint project of the French (underwater) archaeological State department (Département des Recherches Archéologiques Subaquatiques et Sous-Marines: DRASSM) and the archaeological department of the Municipality of Amsterdam (Monuments and Archaeology). The aim of the study was to find clues in the seabed for the localization of The Leusden.
