Shipwreck mystery may remain just that (Cape Cod Times)

TRURO - A relic from the Cape's nautical history washed ashore last week. But it will take some sleuthing before the mystery of its origins is revealed.

the wooden pegs and brass nails (spikes)--- make me think 1900 to 1700 era -- they need to have the wood sampled -- the type of wood used in its construction could tell you where it was made at ( local type hardwoods us or foreign woods.) the build methods used can help in aging it as well  Wink --- spanish treasure vessels had hull sheathing --copper in the later eras --lead earlier --to prevent worms found it the tropical waters from boring thru their wooden hulls --as they sat in port loading treasures on board. --they need to look at the wood for small nail holes from the sheathing --if they are thinking treasure vessel

It looks like a part of the deck area so there would be no lead sheathing there. I'm surprised they didn't take a sample of the wood for radio carbon testing. This would give them a time frame.
