The 18th Century Shipbuilding French Industry : New Perspective on Conception and Construction (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Marijo Gauthier-Bérubé.

The Machault, a French frigate, sank in Chaleur Bay, Québec, in the context of the Seven Years War, in 1760. Built in Bayonne, the archaeological analysis of the frigate gave us a unique vision of the 18th century shipbuilding industry. Coming from a privation shipyard next to the Arsenal of Bayonne, the Machault lay amidst a clash between regional shipbuilding traditions and the globalisation of naval techniques in Europe.   The study of the ship’s structural remains provides a unique view of...

Analysis Of Amidships On The Emanuel Point II Shipwreck (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Charles D Bendig.

Over the past four years University of West Florida archaeologists have excavated the amidships area of the Emanuel Point II (EP II) shipwreck, which was once part of the ill-fated 1559 Spanish colonizing expedition led by Tristán de Luna y Arellano. During excavation, staff and students were able to uncover and record the mainmast step and location for two bilge pumps. Archaeologists also recorded and systematically removed over 30 disarticulated timbers related to the pump well enclosure....

The Battle of La Hougue, 1692: A portrait of the early French Navy of Colbert (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Marijo Gauthier-bérubé.

This is an abstract from the "Current Research and On Going Projects at the J Richard Steffy Ship Reconstruction Laboratory" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. During the Nine Years War (1688-97), Louis XIV of France was fighting most of the other European powers, both in Europe and the Americas. By 1692, France’s earlier victories had provided the opportunity for a large invasion force to cross the English Channel near La Hougue. The fleet was...


A Comparative Study of Dutch and British Ship Speeds from 1750-1850 (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Patricia Schwindinger.

The paper compares the relative speeds of British and Dutch vessels from 1750 to 1850, using data from the CLIWOC (Climatological Database of the World’s Oceans) database. Originally compiled to extend the available information on weather patterns back into the ‘pre-instrument’ period, the database also includes information on the ships that recorded the data. Average daily speeds and maximum recorded speeds were analyzed for 250 unique Dutch ships and 485 unique British ships in order to...

Early Modern Shipwrecks Database (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Filipe Castro. Cecilia Smith. Rakesh Kumar.

In the early 1990s J. Richard Steffy suggested that the body of data on shipbuilding characteristics from archaeological reports was growing and that soon it would be possible to use computers to analyze large sets of data. This paper describes a joint project of the J. Richard Steffy Ship Reconstruction Laboratory (ShipLAB) and Texas A&M Libraries to develop a database of early modern and modern wooden shipwrecks, and both its analytical possibilities, and the necessity to standardize the...

The Influence of the Slave Trade on Atlantic Shipbuilding (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Tiago M Fraga. George Schwarz. Stephen Lubkemann.

Although the history and archaeology of slavery has been well researched, relatively few studies have focused on the design, construction, and use of slave ships. The slave trade introduced new social elements and cultural exchange and created networks of global communication which, after the abolition of slavery, grew into complex international trade systems. The study of slave ships allows us to not only better understand the mechanisms behind this social phenomena, but also brings to light a...


Ironclads and Indian Mounds: The U.S. Mississippi River Squadron Naval Base at Mound City, Illinois (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Go Matsumoto. Mark Wagner.

From 1862-1865 Mound City, Illinois, on the Ohio River was the home  of the 200 ship strong Union Navy Mississippi River Squadron that broke the southern stranglehold on the Mississippi River. Commanded by Commodore Foote and Admiral Porter, the naval base played a crucial role in constructing and repairing armored ships throughout the war. Base facilites included a shipways, foundry, carpenters shop, storehouses,  and hospital. The only visible remnants of the base today are portions of the...


Masters of the Boundless Seas: Opportunities in Historical Archaeology of the Portuguese Colonial Empire (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Robert L. Hoover.

This is an abstract from the "POSTER Session 2: Linking Historic Documents and Background Research in Archaeology" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. None of the major colonial empires of the Early Modern Period have received so much attention as that of the Portuguese, who, in spite of the fact that they initiated the Age of Discovery, were pioneers in nautical technology and developed interests across five continents. Lusitanian expansion provides...


Mediterranean Shipbuilding In Iberia: The Dovetail Mortise And Tenon (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Charles D Bendig.

This is an abstract from the "Current Research and On Going Projects at the J Richard Steffy Ship Reconstruction Laboratory" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Several archaeological projects in the 1980s revolved around excavation and the analysis of 16th-century Iberian shipwrecks. The number of examples allowed Thomas Oertling at the 1989 SHA conference to propose 12 characteristics that appeared on almost all vessels originating from the Iberian...


Not Dead Yet: The Surviving Voice of Wooden Shipbuilding (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nathaniel Howe.

In the Pacific Northwest there is still significant overlap between archaeological material and extant cultural niches.  This overlap enables ethnography and living history to privide critical insight.  For nautical archaeologists, the enigmatic details of early west coast ship construction may be explained by the handful of shipwrights who still work on the region's commercial wooden fishing fleet today.  These tradesmen, however, are the last of their kind.  The wooden fleet is dwindling and...

The State of the Inland Sea: a primer to the submerged cultural resources of Lake Ontario and the Upper St. Lawrence River and the state of studies in Great Lakes Shipbuilding (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Benjamin M Ioset.

This is an abstract from the "Shipwrecks and the Public: Getting People Engaged with their Maritime History" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. The Lower Great Lakes and Upper Saint Lawrence River has served as a natural corridor of transportation, its intensification increasing exponentially with the lifting of restrictions on commercial shipping and shipbuilding in 1785. These restrictions coincided with a shift from military shipbuilding that had...


They Build Ships There: Gold-Rush San Francisco’s Maritime Industries (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only James Allan.

The unprecedented growth of San Francisco during the California Gold-rush was fueled in part by the ingenuity and ambitions of entrepreneurs who recognized and exploited economic opportunities unrelated to the activities in the gold fields. This paper will discuss several maritime enterprises whose remains have been discovered and documented during archaeological investigations William Self Associates has conducted along and within the former confines of early San Francisco’s Yerba Buena...


Wars With America 1776 - 1815 (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Andrew T E Whitefield.

Shipbuilding by James Martin Hilhouse at Bristol during this period of conflict. This young man aged 24 founded in 1772 a shipbuilding business that lasted 200 years and built large warships and merchantmen in Dockyards on the Avon that no longer exist but there is valuable archival material and some recent archaeological surveys have taken place. How did he use the experience gained by his apprenticeship to the Master Shipwright in Royal Dockyards for the benefit of Bristol merchants with...


Whole Molding Construction in Baía de Todos os Santos, Brazil (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Filipe Castro. Denise G. Dias.

The survival of late medieval Mediterranean techniques to conceive and build ships and boats in Brazil was noted by John Patrick Sarsfield in the 1980s, but his study of the Valença shipwrights was interrupted by his tragic death in 1990.  This paper is a contribution to the understanding of these shipbuilding techniques, which are still widely used in the region, from Valença to the Baía de Todos os Santos area.
