Whydah Yields Its Secrets

WhydahVery few subjects are as much fun to think about as sunken treasure. The Whydah is a storied pirate ship ship that sank off the coast of Cape Cod in 1717 carrying a vast load of treasure. The ship was discovered only about 25 years ago and the treasure has been slowly recovered. Read about the most recent recovery in a recent Cape Cod Times article.

Want to have some fun and learn alot more about the Whydah? The Field Museum in Chicago has a significant Whydah exhibit. And a fun website.
