The Undersea History of the Isles of Shoals
Shipwrecks are unique time capsules, providing historians with insight into the past. Shipwreck sites not only feature a vessel’s structure, but contain cargo, personal items, tools, and other diagnostic artifacts. Shipwrecks humanize history, and this conference will examine the role of builders, sailors, and seamen, who gave life to New England.
Guest Speakers: Stephen Erickson, Andrew Vietze; authors, Boon Island, A True Story of Mutiny, Shipwreck and Cannibalism; Warren Riess, author, Angel Gabriel, the Elusive English Galleon; Ray Demers, discoverer of 1744 Royal Navy ship “Asterea” in the Piscataqua River; Nathan Hamilton, Shoals Marine Lab Underwater Archaeological Survey.
