Updates on the Maritime Archaeology of the 1559 Emanuel Point Shipwrecks: Ongoing Investigations of Vessels from Luna’s 1559 Fleet
Author(s): Gregory Cook
This is an abstract from the session entitled "Plus Ultra: An examination of current research in Spanish Colonial/Iberian Underwater and Terrestrial Archaeology in the Western Hemisphere." , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.
Three wreck sites from the 1559 fleet of Don Tristán de Luna y Arellano have been identified to date. Research on these vessels, as well as excavations on the settlement site overlooking the wrecks, provides a unique opportunity to examine an early European colonization landscape through both maritime and terrestrial lenses. This presentation will provide an overview of the expedition, the research that has been done on the three shipwrecks, and the most recent developments in studying these underwater sites.
