Nicholas Budsberg: Shipwreck Excavation at Highbourne Cay, Bahamas
The 2017 Claude Duthuit Archaeology grant was awarded to Nicholas Budsberg to excavate what may be the earliest known European ship in the Americas, dated to the beginning of the Age of Exploration (1492-1520). In 1986 INA partially excavated the wreck, which is likely either an Iberian caravel or nao, but modern methods will ensure an improved study of the hull.
