Maritime archeologist and historian, Bruno Werz says they are 95 percent sure that they have discovered the location of one of South Africa’s most significant shipwrecks, De Haarlem. The Dutch trading ship ran aground in Table Bay in 1647. Werz told the media in Cape Town that they have found copper nails and iron to the south west of the Dolphin Beach hotel on the Blaauwberg coastline. The former Dutch navy diver says he is positive it belongs to De Haarlem, but the material will be sent for forensic testing. Werz has spent almost 30 years hunting for the Dutch East India Company ship. It’s stranding is regarded as the catalyst that created Cape Town.
