ARNHEM (NL) – 3 March 2020 – In Weert, the former hometown of AIMURE’s CEO Bruno Werz, a rumour about finding the Haarlem shipwreck spread very quickly yesterday. Bruno Werz however recently found the remains of an English shipwreck from the 19th century. The work on the beach was noticed by somebody who related this with the search for the Haarlem shipwreck.
Who the source of this ‘news’ was and how this mix-up reached Weert remains a mystery, but it shows the great public interest for the Haarlem project . Local newspaper ‘De Limburger’ covered this story after a phone call with Bruno who stated that he is still waiting for the result of a laboratory investigation on the wreck samples to prove that they originate from the Haarlem shipwreck.
