Video: 18th Century Shipwreck Washes Ashore in FL

A mother and son walking along a beach in Florida were stunned to see  that a rather sizeable shipwreck has somehow washed ashore.

Initially thinking that it was merely a big piece of driftwood, Julie  Turner could not believe her eyes when she got closer and realized that  it was the 48-foot-long remains of a ship.

Maritime historians from the area marveled at the incredible vessel,  calling it "the holy grail of shipwrecks" due to both its  fairly-well-preserved condition as well as its remarkable age of origin,  which could be as far back as the 1700's.

In a testament to our modern age, researchers were able to quickly  examine the vessel and produced a copious amount of documentation of the  ship's remains in the hopes of constructing a 3D recreation.
