Identity of 17th Century shipwreck revealed as The Fame
The identity of a 17th Century ship wrecked off the Dorset coast has been revealed.
The so-called Swash Channel Wreck was discovered in a sand and shingle bank outside Poole Harbour.
Experts believe it to be a Dutch merchant vessel named The Fame which foundered in a storm in March 1631.
The name was revealed at an event to mark its rudder - raised from the seabed in 2013 - going on public display at Poole Museum.
The 8.4m (28ft) rudder, with a moustachioed face carved into it, was lifted on to Poole Quay by Bournemouth University marine archaeologists in 2013 after almost a decade of investigation and excavation work. Read more.
Disney’s ‘Moana’ Sailing Past $600M At Worldwide Box Office Today
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ plucky Polynesian navigator is set to sail across the $600M global box office mark today. The Ron Clements/John Musker-helmed Moana is pushing past the milestone following a strong $6.3M No.1 opening in Japan last frame. The domestic gross is $247.6M and the international box office is $351.8M through Wednesday.
Moana, which stars newcomer Auli’i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson, debuted domestically on November 23 last year with $82M over five days to become the No. 2 biggest Thanksgiving holiday opening of all time behind only Frozen. Internationally, it had a staggered release with France leading at $35.4M through last Sunday, followed by China with $32.7M, the UK at $24.6M, Brazil’s $22.3M and Australia’s $18.9M.
(Moana has also made $5M in New Zealand. That’s as much as Rogue One.)
