Beeswax Ship


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

An archaeological team is investigating the wreck of a Spanish galleon — a transport ship — that went down with as many as 400 people aboard off the coast at Manzanita about 1690. The cargo from that vessel has been washing up on the Oregon coast for more than a century. Now the search is on for the remains of the ship itself.
