There is still time today to sign up for the ZOOM Presentation of Famous and Forgotten Ships of the Jersey Shore tomorrow, Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m.

The treacherous Jersey shore has been the untimely grave of thousands of seafaring vessels. This well-illustrated presentation examines a select group of New Jersey ships and shipwrecks reflecting the importance of maritime transportation to the history of the state. An eclectic range of vessels is examined, from Native American dugout canoes to colonial privateers, a Durham boat, Civil War submarine, and 20th-century ocean liners. Shipwrecks and the artifacts found in them are time capsules of history that reveal important the themes that have shaped our state and nation’s history.

This odyssey of archaeology will be presented by Richard Veit, Ph.D. Professor of Anthropology and Interim Dean of the Wayne D. McMurray School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Monmouth University. His research focuses on the colonial Middle Atlantic Region. Dr. Veit is the author of seven books and has been the recipient of Monmouth University’s distinguished teacher award.
