The Voyage of the Vizcaina Summary


The Voyage of the Vizcaina: The Mystery of Christopher Columbus's Last Ship by Klaus Brinkbaumer

Lying in only twenty-five feet of water in a small gulf off the coast of Panama, an unremarkable shipwreck managed to escape detection for centuries before being discovered in the mid-1990s. In 2002, Klaus Brinkbaumer and Clemens Hoges, journalists and keen amateur divers, were the first to assemble a team of experts to analyse the remains. They discovered that it was not only the oldest wreck ever found in the Western Hemisphere, but almost certainly the remains of the Vizcaina, one of the ships Columbus took on his final trip to the New World. "The Voyage of the Vizcaina" combines investigative journalism, archaeology and history to give us the fascinating story and startling truths behind Columbus's final attempt to reach the East by going west.
