Hoisting the mainsail on the Kalmar Nyckel, Delaware’s official tall ship, Dave Pacifico (C’01, foreground) and his fellow students in Anthropology Professor Frederik Hiebert’s underwater archaeology class get a glimpse of the hard work 17th-century sailors endured. The students spent two hours May 3 cruising the Delaware River aboard the ship as a final activity for the class, which was last offered at Penn in the late 1960s.
