Learn about the Pirate Ship, Whydah

Saturday, October 9 at 1:00 pm

Celebrate Archaeology Month with our very special guest Ken Kinkor from The Whydah Museum in Provincetown. He'll talk about the great galley that went from slave ship to conquest of pirate "Black Sam" Bellamy. The ship went down in a storm off Cape Cod in 1717. More than two centuries later, the wreck was located by Barry Clifford and a team of recovery experts and archaeologists. Discover how the ship's artifacts were recovered and conserved and learn what they can teach us about the ship and its history.
