I'm not asking much...
#1
I'm not asking much, but, does anyone have any idea where I might find a buried ship of around 16th century date? If anyone knows of any likely palaeochannels, silted-up anchorages, back beach deposits, filled-in meanders or docks, I would like to know about it. I've got some leads but I just thought I'd ask the board in case you'd heard a tale in an inn on a dark and stormy night.

Careful, it might be hallucinogEeEe**33nnnn..

Port Royal, Jamaica is the place!

Boston Haven (the tidal estuary of the River Witham, in Boston, Lincolnshire) could be a possibility, but if there is anything of that date there it is likely to be hidden behind modern sheet piling. There are certainly boats visible in the estuary muds, but they are generally going to be much later than the 16th century.

Ah - if you are looking for previously excavated examples, there is indeed one from Hull waterfront - although I think it may be earlier than the 16th century.
