Centuries-Old Shipwreck Faces Destruction in Coming Canada Storm

5 months ago

A wrecked ship of unknown origins was recently revealed along the coast of the small town of Cape Ray in Newfoundland, Canada. The 100-foot vessel had likely rested undiscovered on the seafloor for about two centuries until being dislodged by Hurricane Fiona in September 2022.

It then drifted over 15 miles to settle in the shallow waters off Cape Ray's shoreline. Local residents Shawn Bath and Trevor Croft were the first to examine the brig upon its astonishing arrival.

As a winter Canada storm bears down on parts of the country once more, the community races urgently to preserve the relic before it gets demolished.

Marine Archaeologists Shine Light on Wreck's Significance

The shipwreck presents a precious vestige of history for the townspeople. While its nationality and purpose stay uncertain, marine archaeologists like Cranfield University's Dr Lisa Briggs note it may disclose vital clues about Cape Ray's population lineage.
