Science and History of Shipwrecks: Archaeology and Conservation
Please join the Falmouth Public Library on Tuesday, January 25th from 7pm- 8pm via Zoom as Maire Zahn presents a lecture on the Science and History of Shipwrecks: Archaeology and Conservation! To register to attend this virtual event go to falmouthpubliclibrary.org/ e vents or call the library at 508-457-2555 x7.

This discussion into the world of underwater archaeology focusses on the challenges of artifact conservation and the effects of different underwater environments on ships and their artifacts. See how material objects deteriorate and decay over time by looking at shipwrecks from diverse time periods throughout history as well as spanning the globe in terms of construction and final resting places – from ancient Greece to pirate treasure!

Marie Zahn, a Cape Cod native, is the Director of the Brooks Academy Museum and A. Elmer Crowell Decoy Barn Museum for the Harwich Historical Society, as well as serving as the Administrator for the Historical Society of Old Yarmouth. Prior to this, she spent several years working on an early 18th century shipwreck as an archaeologist, conservator, and science education coordinator.
