Summary "The Tortugas shipwreck excavated at a depth of 405 meters in the Straits of Florida contained a major collection of 3,800 intact and fragmentary olive jars, tablewares, cooking vessels and tobacco pipes. Identified as the Portuguese-built and Spanish-operated 117-ton Buen Jesús y Nuestra Señora del Rosario, the ship's Seville dominated tablewares are a revealing index of unchanged cultural tastes and continued production at the end of Spain's Golden Age. For cooking the crew relied on Afro-Caribbean colonoware, possibly the first recorded archaeological evidence of maritime slavery in the Americas fleets. Two tin-glazed plates painted with papal coat of arms--the Keys of Heaven and triple crown--may have been used by Spain-bound clergymen from the newly formed Sacred Congregation of the Propagation of the Faith"--Provided by publisher.
