Summary

From 1999 to 2008, an underwater archaeological excavation has been carried away, by French Ministry of Culture DRASSM and the ADRAMAR association, on two French Frigates sunk off St. Malo (France). One has been identified as the Dauphine, a light frigate built for privateering in the royal dockyard of Le Havre (1703) and sunk on December 1704. The other is known as the Aimable Grenot, a large frigate built in Granville for a private ship-owner (1747), armed for privateering then for trade before her wreckage on May 1749.The archaeological project has been carried out into a comparative and global study of La Natière site, in order to compare material culture, hull structures, supplies and outfitting of the two ships.
