When Hurricane Isabel blew the water out of the Cashie River in Bertie County in 2003, the remains of a large wooden ship were visible. Photographs were sent to the Underwater Archaeology Department at East Carolina University and researchers spent two seasons working on the wreck in 2009 and 2010. Fueston describes some of their findings.
The Cashie River has revealed an unexpected find. A wharf and shipwreck have been found quite close to shore by resident Becky Bowling. A project to study the find is being conducted by ECU’s maritime studies program.
