[Watch] 122 Year Old British Shipwreck Found

610

Archaeologists have uncovered the buried remains of a British ship that ran aground on a beach in Brazil after typhoon winds destroyed it more than 120 years ago.

The wreckage has been identified as The Kestrel, a clipper which floundered on Embaré Beach in Santos, south east Brazil, on February 11 1895.

Stumps of wood and pieces of metal from the vessel appeared for the first time in low tide in August this year after the shoreline was hit by huge waves and sand erosion.

Archaeologists are now waiting anxiously for the Brazilian navy to authorise excavation of the ancient craft.

Scientists were stunned to discover the almost intact relic of a century-old boat measuring approximately 50 metres long by 12 metres wide.
