LEWES- The investigation continues into those historical artifacts that recently washed up on the shore of Lewes.
Archaeologists say they are hinting more and more towards their ship wreck theory. They say that is the most logical explanation for the recent findings.

People showed up at a public meeting Thursday night at the Zwaanendael Museum in Lewes holding bags of items found on a nearby beach last month.

Archaeologists told the public about their plans to figure out how these artifacts ended up in Delaware. They say they have not been able to give definite answers as of yet but say all of that will soon change.

"We are set to find out a lot more," said archaeologist Craig Lukezic. "We will have some divers on the site probably within a month or two to go down and do some preliminary research."

If you would like to view or share items you have found you can visit the Zwaanendael Museum in Lewes or for more information call (302) 645-1148.
