…uncovered after 300 years

"America's largest pirate mass burial site has been discovered after 300 years, with more than 100 sets of remains offering clues to the crew's exploits.

Archaeologists believe the site is the last resting place of Captain "Black Sam" Bellamy's crew, who drowned when the Whydah Gally, their ship, was wrecked at sea in 1717.

The body of Bellamy, thought to be the richest pirate ever, was not accounted for at the time but around 100 of his crew were recovered and given a land burial in Massachusetts…"

The discovery of the Whydah wreck is fascinating. The guy who found it wrote an interesting book about it. Many of his finds were on display at his private museum in Provincetown, and I was able to see them. The museum is now in Yarmouth, which is easier to get to.
