Shipwrecks were a common occurrence in the 19th century, as Europeans attempted to migrant to North America. However, these shipwrecks often remain a mystery as they sink down to the bottom of our oceans and remain undiscovered. However, an interesting discovery was made this week as Parks Canada has confirmed that a group of human remains that washed up onto Canadian shores actually belonged to victims of a shipwreck from 1847.\nBack in 2011, the bones of three children washed up on shore in Gaspé, Quebec. A few years later in 2016, another 18 individuals were discovered during a beach restoration in the same area, states CBC.\nThe bones were a mystery and many scientists were wondering exactly where they came from. The remains were sent to Parks Canada and then to researches at the Montreal University where they were studied.\nThe scientists behind the case told CBC that the bones were extremely fragile due to their old age and scientist had to work carefully while attempting to determine their origins. In fact, the bones were so fragile that scientists recall that as soon as they were touched they would start to crumble. But after some time, scientists were finally able to discover where these bones came from.\nView this post on Instagram Mediterranean sky. Quite ironic, it's the name of the ship posing under the actual Mediterranean sky. . . The story : The ship was built in 1953 and was witness to the luxurious lifestyle of that Era, doing the voyage from Patra to Ancona offering a luxurious experience to the passengers. Unfortunately during the end of 80's the shipping company was so much in debt that had to stop working so the ship remained anchored at Port of Patras. Of course no one wanted it to be left to rot in their own port so the local authorities gathered money in order to take it to Elefsina so it can be scraped. After numerous court hearings about where the ship will go, it was concluded to be left at Elefsina where the time decided its fate, making it lay on the sea, for what it seems, it's for ever. Its laying there ever since, rusting but still carrying the memories of thousands and being like a small ateaction for photography enthusiasts. I would like to thank @george_spanoudakiss for sharing this beautiful location with me. There were a lot of tries to do something about all the shipwrecks around the area, but it seems that they didn't succeed. Let's hope the issue will be resolved. . . Photography TIPS : If you decide to take a look at it, take care of the rocks as they are slippery. You can see the sun at that point only during sunrise so you have to get there early 😁 Enjoy! . . Have an amazing day every one! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #greece #greecelover_gr #wu_greece #travel_greece #ig_greece #greecestagram #greecetravelgr1_ #kings_greece #super_greece #great_captures_greece #drone #dronestagram #dronephotography #droneoftheday #aerialphotography #dji #sunrise #nature #sunrise_lovers #sunriselovers #naturelovers #fromwhereidrone #eclectic_shotz #shipwreck #elefsina #photography #landscapephotography #photooftheday #coolmariners A post shared by Thanos Sth (@sththanos) on Jun 8, 2019 at 6:21am PDT\nThe scientists behind the study state that since our skeletons reflect what we eat, they were able to determine that they belonged to those who lived in a rural population where they were dependent on potatoes.\nThey were also able to extract data that let them discover that these skeletons were malnourished, something that was common among people who were traveling long distances on ships.\nView this post on Instagram Brief Story // Right before we pulled up to Forillon National Park last night we came across this cool lighthouse, what caught my eye was the decent set of waves that were rolling in at the time. I so badly wanted to grab my board and paddle out and catch some waves, however it was late and the forecast was calling for even bigger sets the following day. So with that in mind I quickly took this photo and we headed into Forillon Park to get some sleep. The next morning I could no longer hear the crash of waves on the shore, only the sound of a light rain on our tent. Good waves are finicky things, there are a lot of variables that go into producing enough energy in the ocean to create a good swell. I'm now sitting in front of this same light house at high tide with no waves and a diminishing forecast. There are so many lessons that can be learned from this, one for me is that I have so much to be thankful for and continue to be in awe of the beuaty that surrounds me.

CTV News states that the ship was carrying 180 passengers when it left from Ireland during the Potato Famine.\nIt was recorded to sink just off the coast of Cap-des-Rosiers in Gaspé, killing as many as 150 people. It was estimated that only 48 people survived this shipwreck.\nParks Canada also told CTV that the remains of the 21 passengers that have been found will be buried near the Irish Memorial that was erected in 1900 in memory of shipwrecked passengers at Cap-des-Rosiers Beach. The ceremony will be this summer.\n*Disclaimer: Photo used for illustrative purposes only.
