Beachcombing is as old as humans have lived on the shore. Flotsom, debris in the water that was a result from a shipwreck or accident, was considered fair game and early settlers filled their homes with items found on the beach. Mooncussers, on the other hand, were pirates who send out false homing signals to ships at sea during the evenings to lure them to go off course and crash on the shore, where they were looted.
