A shipwreck from the 1800s turns up on a Florida beach

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A mysterious wooden object turned up on a Florida beach last month. Archaeologists say it's a shipwreck from the 1800s - 80 feet long - and erosion from two recent hurricanes exposed it at Daytona Beach Shores. Archaeologists say the ship is in such a delicate state, they don't plan to dig it up. Instead, they're planning to take pictures and study the ship until the tide buries it with sand again. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
