Archaeological Investigation of a Landing Craft Vehicle Personnel (LCVP)


Over the past several years volunteers from MAHS have documented the remains of a vintage LCVP, or Landing Craft Personnel Vehicle as it was formally known in the 1940s and 1950s.   The wreck lies on the banks of the Wicomico River in Salisbury, Maryland.
