The searches lasted 16 years and were confirmed by radiocarbon tests: the beams found off Nehalim Bay belonged to the Santo Cristo de Burgos, a Spanish ship that sailed from Manila and was swallowed by the Pacific Ocean in 1693.
More than just a ghost ship, an Arab Phoenix ship: “That there is, everyone says so“, But number He knew where the remains Santo Cristo de Burgos, a 17th century Spanish sailing ship that left Manila and disappeared into the Pacific Ocean more than three centuries ago strangely
Loaded with Chinese tea, Chinese silk and tiles
beeswax lumps. At least until today.
Now a group of marine archaeologists and researchers seem to have reasonable certainty that the sixteen large timber remnants found on Oregon Beach, at the mouth of the Nehalem River and 11,000 kilometers from the Manila port where the ship set off, are what remain.
This discovery above all excites the (many) fans of fools
And the 1985 blockbuster movie based on Steven Spielberg’s story Where, in Oregon, a group of children are searching for the treasure of a 17th century ship, which sank not far away.
The ship in the movie, “Inferno”, was made specifically for filming and then destroyed, although in working order, due to the lack of owners; Santo Cristo de Burgos was later renamed Wreck of beeswax, meaning “beeswax residue”, and had a story hidden in many other mysteries.
The film’s setting in Oregon was not accidental. On the shores of the Nehalem Bay area, 65 kilometers from Astoria where adventures fools
The oceans have long brought ashore bits of blue and white tiles or bites of beeswax. So much so that since at least 2006, a team of specialists coordinated by Search Inc. , a local cultural agency, is on to find the remains of a galleon. The first to care, then, was
Archaeologist Scott Williams of the Washington State Department of Transportation is intrigued by a conversation between two friends about a mysterious ship. To the extent that he, along with other researchers, founded the Society for Naval Archeology specifically to study porcelain shards and blocks of wax that appeared over the decades. The seals on the wax left no doubt: they were Spanish goods. The possible galleons, which disappeared between Manila and Acapulco in the period indicated by the carbon analysis in the finds, i.e. between 1650 and 1750, were only two: Santo Cristo de Burgos, which disappeared in 1693, or San Francisco Xavier disappeared in 1705. Then the second was dumped: the remains came from a sedimentary area after the tsunami of 1700. So it sank first. Then he spent a great deal of time refuting a misconception of historians: that the holy Christ was burned. But the Spanish Naval Archives speak of a “disappearance”. Finally, two years of the pandemic have slowed an already slow process of questioning researchers.
A fisherman, now 49, named Craig Andes and a huge fan of fools
, for a long time ignored by the same association when it was assumed that the sixteen rafters protruding from the water, found in a cave in Nehalim Bay, came from the wreck. No one believed that those bundles, so well preserved, might have been soaking in salt water for 300 years. But the area at the mouth of the Nehalem River is not very saline. The radioactive carbon left no doubt. The rafters were restored in June, on a daring mission in turn (weighing 136 kg). Now, the company has announced that it will be made available to Galleon Scientists from around the world. And in the future, who knows, the lovers fools.
