Beach visitors instructed to turn in potential artifacts


May 20, 2005

LEWES, Del. - Residents and beach-season visitors to Lewes are being given instructions how to handle any potentially historic artifacts they might find in the sand.

The state posted signs yesterday informing beach goers that they can take the items to the nearby Zwaanendael Museum for examination.

Since December, the Lewes beach has been the site of an archaeological dig after a beach dredging project deposited items from what is believed to be a cargo ship that sank in the 1700s.
