New England’s fishermen harvest millions of pounds of seafood each year. Anyone who has fished for any length of time has a story about something unexpected that came up in the net. From bottles, pottery, and tools to bones, fossils and even bombs, remarkable objects are continuously pulled up from the deep.

Visit us on Saturday, June 29 from 1:00pm-4:00pm while a team of maritime archeologists are at the Center examining treasures from the deep.

CALLING ALL FISHERMEN!

Have you found unexpected items in your nets or dredges and don’t know what they are? If so, bring them in and a team of maritime archeologists will be at the Center to examine your artifacts and possibly solve the mystery!
