By BRUCE STEVENSON KINGSTON, R.I. (UPl) There is Revolutionary War booty in Narragansett Bay and two marine scientists from the University of Rhode Island (URI) have begun a project to recover the priceless items. The wreck sites of the British warships HMS Cerberus and HMS Lark In the east passage of the bay have been added to the National Register of Historic Places. The two frigates were sunk during the Battle of Rhode Island in 1778 after the French joined the colonies in their fight for independence. Albert Davis a URI diver- researcher and John McAniff, said the project would cost about $60,000 and they hope to attempt the recovery of artifacts from the two ships this summer. They said the work will be carried out with archeological supervision. They said the two ships are typical of undisturbed, underwater wreck sites. The site3 were placed in the National Register of Historic Places to protect the artifacts pending recovery operations and careful study of the findings. McAniff said the sites were found by his colleague after three years of research and two years of an underwater search. "Davis conducted a long, tedious underwater search and finally came up with pay dirt," McAniff said. Ballast mounts, large sections of heavy oak planking, cannon- anchors, cannonballs, ship fittings, plates, coins and remnants of furniture are some of the artifacts expected to be found strewn about the bottom of the bay. Most items are buried in sediment. The sites, separated from one another by several miles, give physical evidence of the destruction of the British fleet stationed at Newport during the Battle of Rhode Island. The French fleet arrived In Rhode Island waters on July 8, 1778, and anchored off Broton's Point, successfully blockading the British fleet off Newport and setting the scene for Rhode Island's major conflict in the War of Independence. As the French ships entered Narragansett Bay, the British began to scuttle their ships td prevent capture by the French. Among the many ships destroyed by the British were four large frigates mounting a total of 124 cannons. These ships included the Cerberus and Lark. McAniff and Davis declined to disclose the exact location of the two sunken ships for fear of pilferage of the artifacts.
