Summary

During the 2012 UWF maritime archaeological field school, a large, complex portion of ship structure was discovered directly aft of the articulated stern of the Emanuel Point II shipwreck. In addition to a small amount of ballast, the structure is comprised of planks and framing timbers along with associated artifacts. One primary focus of the past two field seasons was to determine if this structure represented additional remains of the EP II ship or if it might be the presence of an additional shipwreck from Tristan de Luna’s colonization fleet. This paper provides an overview of the structural components and preliminary interpretations of this structure.
