A 42-foot-long section of a wooden hull of a ship recently washed up on shore, just south of Jacksonville. It's unclear how old it is, but it may be from the 1700's or 1800's. Researchers with the USF Libraries Digital Heritage and Humanities Collections were called in to take digital scans of the wreck. On University Beat on WUSF Public Media, we speak to Collections' Director Lori Collins about what they've learned about the ship - and how her work helps preserve history.
