The Center for Historic Shipwreck Preservation’s locations for research and archaeology include the Keneth J. Kinkor Center for Research & Archaeology in Brewster, Massachusetts and the John F. Kennedy Jr. Sea Lab & Learning Center in Yarmouth, Massachusetts.
The primary mission of the Center’s facilities is to support nautical and maritime research, education, underwater archaeology and the curation of archaeological reference and teaching materials.
The Center’s staff is in the process of developing a Museum Studies Program based on underwater archaeology and and the Golden Age of Piracy. Participants will learn about interpreting material objects in archaeology and the rich history of the pirate ship Whydah.
Furthermore, the Center has set up and funded the refurbishment of a museum and laboratory housing an exhibition on pirates in Sainte-Marie, Madagascar. The facility will serve as a permanent maritime archaeology base and ensures that the process of excavating and conserving nearby shipwrecks can be made effective and efficient. An important goal of this partnership is to empower local researchers and build up the capacity for shipwreck preservation and tourism.
