Background

Found by Teddy Tucker in Bermuda, this wreck consisted of a large portion of a hull extending over an area of 14 x 8.5 m. Treasure appraisor Mendel Peterson dated the wreck from the period between 1560 and 1580. Again no data on these reamins subsists in spite of its large hull remains, a picture of which was published in the National Geographic Magazine.
