The First Emanuel Point Ship: Archaeological Investigation of a 16th-Century Spanish Colonization Vessel

Author(s): John R. Bratten

Year: 2016

Summary

The first Emanuel Point Ship (EPI) was discovered in 1992 and firmly associated with the 1559 colonization fleet of Don Tristán de Luna y Arellano in 1998.  This followed the initial discovery, preliminary investigation, and multi-year excavation accomplished by the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research, the Historic Pensacola Preservation Board and the University of West Florida. Since that time, laboratory conservation, additional historical research, the production of numerous student theses, and other reports have added to a more complete understanding of this 16th-century Spanish colonization vessel.  Comparisons between this ship and the second vessel to be associated with the fleet, Emanuel Point II (EPII), can now be made.
