    Look: Wreckage from 1800s ship washes up on North Carolina beach

    Feb. 25 (UPI) — Historians are investigating an aquatic mystery after wreckage from what is believed to be an 1800s shipwreck washed up on the beach at a North Carolina resort.

    The Shoals Club posted photos to Facebook showing the pieces of a sunken ship that appeared on the resort’s beachfront on Bald Head Island.

    The post said the wreckage washed up during a high tide in January, and archaeologists who visited the club this week determined the items were the pieces of a ship dating to the 19th century.

    “We are asking that all beachgoers stay away from these remains as we discover more,” the post said.

    The waters off the North Carolina coast are known to be home to hundreds of shipwrecks, and experts said it will take time to identify the washed-up wreckage.
