“OK, we’ve admittedly got a thing for shipwrecks. And when it turns out that one gets compared to finding Noah’s ark in Lake Michigan, well, we pay attention.

“The Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the state archaeologist’s office approved a plan by Great Lakes Exploration Group, which hopes to identify the vessel as the Griffin, also known by the French equivalent Le Griffon. Legendary explorer Rene-Robert Sieur de La Salle built and commanded the ship on behalf of King Louis XIV.”

The state permit allows them to dig two test pits on the lake bottom and search for evidence that a shipwreck is there and that it’s the Griffin, said Sandra Clark, director of the Michigan Historical Center, part of the DNR.”
