Discovery: Scientists Seek Santa Maria

Archaeologist Kathleen Deagan believes she may have found the resting site of Columbus' flagship, the Santa Maria.

Using documentation from the time, Deagan has excavated an area of northern Haiti for 25 years and now feels she may have found the spot. Excavations have turned up remains of rats and pigs, both known to have been carried aboard the ship. The Santa Maria is believed to have wrecked on a Caribbean sandbar, leaving 39 sailors behind.
