The Beeswax Wreck Project: The First 10 Years.
Author(s): Scott S Williams
The Beeswax Wreck Project is an all-volunteer, non-profit effort to identify and locate a proto-historic wreck locally known as the Beeswax Wreck of Nehalem, Oregon, USA. The results of the ten-year effort by a multi-disciplinary team are reported, including the identification of the vessel as the Manila galleon 'Santo Cristo de Burgos', lost in 1693. Remote sensing and dive survey efforts to locate hull deposits that could confirm the identity of the vessel will be discussed. Despite the lack of an identifiable wreck site, the identification of the Beeswax Wreck as the remains of the 'Santo Cristo de Burgos' is based on archaeological, archival, and geomorphological evidence.
