Archaeology Team to Survey Shipwreck at Cape Ray

Officials with the Provincial Archaeology Office are preparing to travel to Cape Ray to conduct a survey of the remains of a ship that recently appeared on the shore of J. T. Cheeseman Provincial Park.

The team is planning to be on site on Saturday to take detailed photographs, video and measurements and to collect wood core samples to try and determine the origin of the wreckage.

There are potentially thousands of shipwrecks in the waters around the Island of Newfoundland and it may be difficult to pinpoint the exact origin of this vessel.
