The remains of the large merchantman Gagliana grossa, lost in 1583 near the little island of Gnali’, in the Adriatic Sea, a few miles from Biograd na Moru, in today’s Croatia, represent a rare opportunity to study the conception of large Venetian ships in the mid-sixteenth century. This paper relates the ongoing mapping of the shipwreck site, carried out by a joint team of the Universities of Zadar and Texas A&M during the summers of 2012 and 2013.
