PROVINCETOWN, Mass. - The wreck of a British warship the American revolutionary Paul Revere eluded before his famous ride to warn American patriots the British were coming has resurfaced in shifting sands off Massachusetts.

About a dozen timbers from the HMS Somerset III were spotted after erosion from recent storms on a beach in Provincetown, on the tip of Cape Cod.

Cape Cod National Seashore historian William Burke tells The Boston Globe newspaper it's been at least 37 years since any part of the Somerset was seen.

Reminds me of the Goonies

The link to the story is here. An historical account of the ship and the sinking is here.

The following selected narrative is from: Jennings, Herman A.: Provincetown orOdds and Ends From the Tip End. 1975. Peaked Hill Press. pages 70 to 72) About one mile westward from the Peaked Hill Life Saving Station, buried beneath the sands, lies the wreck of the English Frigate Somerset. This vessel has a history intimately connected with Provincetown. Authentic records give the information that she was a third rate frigate, built in Chatham dock-yards, England, and launched July 18th, 1748, and carried sixty-four guns, thirty-two, eighteen, and twelve pounders.

Is this more evidence of a timeline shift? Did the Germans win the war?
