In this series of interviews with today’s news-makers, host Faith Haney of Central Washington University (CWU) explores cultural anthropology and archaeology. In the fifth episode, taped in September 2007, Faith queries Washington archaeologist Scott Williams about his search for the “Beeswax Shipwreck of Nehalem.” On the northern Oregon Coast, near the mouth of the Nehalem River, beeswax chunks, other cargo, and even parts of a ship have been turning up over the past two centuries. Is this a lost Spanish galleon from the 17th Century?
