Monday, July 22, 2013
GEORGETOWN, PRINCE EDWARD ISLE—Archaeologist Helen Kristmanson is examining the remains of a ship discovered near Poxy Island by a couple going for a walk. Most of the nineteenth-century ship, which has collapsed, is buried in the sand. “There are a lot of wooden planks and some metal hardware. Really, what we’ll be looking at is trying to get a feel for what the dimensions of the timbers were, types of fastener, the species of wood,” she said. Excavations will begin this week.
