A newly discovered 300-year-old pirate burial site may be the largest-ever found on U.S. soil, according to archaeologists.

More than 100 skeletal remains were found at the Massachusetts site, some of which might belong to Captain “Black Sam” Bellamy, thought to be the world’s richest pirate. However, his remains have yet to be accounted for, The Telegraph reports.

“Over 100 pirates washed ashore on Cape Cod [after the wreck], and our team believe that we have located it,” Casey Sherman, author and filmmaker who partnered with the research team, told The Telegraph. “It’s very hallowed ground...Almost every day we’re learning more about what happened 300 years ago.”

Bellamy and his crew are thought to have drowned in 1717, when their ship, the Whydah Gally, was wrecked. In order to confirm that some of the bones are in fact Bellamy’s, Sherman and researchers from the Whydah Pirate Museum have identified a descendent of the wealthy pirate in the U.K. who is willing to provide a DNA sample, according to Cape Cod Times.
