    Shipwreck site in the state of Victoria, Australia. The archaeological remains are situated close to Port Phillip Heads at the entrance to the port of Melbourne. The lower part of the wooden hull, together with the remains of the cargo, including many partial and complete casks containing salted meat and fish (see Faunal studies) lie in approximately 12 m of water. Many of the cask heads are marked with brands, stencils and other markings, which provide information about the weight, quality, or grade of the contents. The name of the inspector, the city where it was inspected, the year and month of inspection and 'L.C.' for Lower Canada, are also branded on the cask heads.
