Lecture: Hidden History: Underwater Archaeology in Massachusetts

Presented by Victor T. Mastone, Director and Chief Archaeologist,
Board of Underwater Archaeological Resources
Every day we see Massachusetts’ maritime heritage on land, in the form of
lighthouses and the homes of ship’s captains, and even as floating examples such as the U.S.S. Constitution and the Schooner Ernestina.  However, there is a wealth of heritage most of us never see lying under the waters of ocean, lakes, and rivers of our state.  These resources span the breadth of human occupation of Massachusetts.  This presentation is an overview of our diverse submerged heritage and the state agency that protects it.
