Join us on Sat., Sept. 15, 2018 at 2 PM and learn how Rhode Island, the Ocean State, has more shipwrecks per square mile than any other state! This presentation documents the history of numerous shipwrecks along the coast of Narragansett, going as far back as the 17th century. Many of the shipwrecks from the 19th to the 20th century have been captured in dramatic photographs, and these pictures show the variety of vessels that traveled Rhode Island's waters back when the ocean was the primary transportation corridor and the many ways things went terribly wrong for them. Ms. Charlotte Taylor, has been part of archaeological survey projects on several of the shipwrecks included in this presentation.
