SEASIDE — Scott Williams, the lead archaeologist for the Maritime Archaeological Society’s Beeswax Wreck Project, will share tales of “Lost Castaways and Mystery Shipwrecks on the Oregon Coast” at Seaside Museum’s next History & Hops at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29.

The event takes place at Seaside Brewing Co., 861 Broadway St.

Though most people first think of the Peter Iredale when the subject of local shipwrecks comes up, many other shipwrecks have occurred along the North Coast. Our “Graveyard of the Pacific” abounds with tales of mysterious shipwrecks, lost castaways, pirates and sailing vessels.

Williams will recount stories, mysteries and history that he has learned during his many archaeological forays. He will also discuss his current undertakings on the Beeswax Wreck Project.
