An alien sight in an alien world.

An alien sight in an alien world.

With the new focus on raising finds, we have been raising scattered timbers recently. Among them, we have a lot that are colored bright yellow. We aren’t certain what causes the yellow pigmentation but we believe it to be connected with the red pigment (cinnabar) that we regularly find in the barrel and around the site, meaning that the ship’s cargo comprised in part of a yellow dye. It’s only speculation but it makes for some very interesting finds. It’s as if the ship itself has taken a highlighter to the important timbers that we are searching for!
