Summary
  • HMS Fowey was a small ship, carrying 44 guns and more than 200 men, captained by a descendant of Sir Francis Drake's brother. It had scored victories over French and Spanish ships in battle but in 1748 was severely damaged by a reef in what is now Biscayne National Park
  • This intriguing archaeological history traces the life of the ship, the court martial of her captain, her rediscovery in the 1970s, and the long process of artifact recovery and ship identification. The result is a fascinating story of intrigue and adventure that stretches across the centuries
