Researchers in Massachusetts are looking for the HMS Diana, a British schooner that ran aground and was torched by the Continental Army.

“It’s a relatively unknown or unrecognized battle so we want to give it more definition,” said Victor Mastone, director and chief archaeologist at the Massachusetts Board of Underwater Archaeological Resources.

Mastone said there have been occasional reports of the Diana remnants being discovered over the years, but each time the wreck turned out to be another, unrelated ship.
