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.
