Research Updates on the Emanuel Point II Shipwreck Project, the Study of a Vessel from Luna’s 1559 Fleet
In this paper we will present an update on the continuing archaeological and historic research on the second shipwreck identified as a vessel from Don Tristán de Luna y Arrellano’s 1559 fleet. Known as "Emanuel Point II", archaeologists and students from the University of West Florida have focused recent excavations on the vessel’s stern and midships area, and have uncovered new artifacts and significant areas of hull structure never before exposed. Historic research on the expedition and vessels in the fleet has continued as well, providing new insights into Luna’s voyage and attempt to settle in northwest Florida.
