The Sunshine State has a rich maritime history spanning more than five centuries. Tragically, part of that history includes thousands of ships that have met their fates in Florida waters. Potentially more than 5,000 shipwrecks reside off Florida's 1,200 miles of coastline, with hundreds more lost in the state's interior rivers. In and of itself, the Florida Keys archipelago, consisting of approximately 1,700 islands stretching 200 miles, is littered with the remains of close to 1,000 shipwrecks. In fact, many features of the Florida Keys were named after various shipwreck events, such as Fowey Rocks, which earned its name after the 1748 wrecking of the British warship HMS Fowey, and Alligator Reef, where the schooner USS Alligator met her demise in 1822. Florida's Shipwrecks utilizes captivating images to illustrate dramatic stories of danger and peril at sea, introducing readers to a fascinating cross-section of Florida's shipwreck history.

Pottery from Spanish Shipwrecks, 1500-1800

"A classic whose quality will meet the test of time. No doubt this book will become a standard reference for students of the early modern archaeology of the Spanish empire, be their focus under the ground or under the sea."--Russell Skowronek, Santa Clara University "An important new archaeological approach. . . . To date, archaeologists have paid little systematic attention to [artifact collections recovered from shipwreck sites]. Marken's book demonstrates that this is a resource that simply cannot be ignored."--Lynn Harris, Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of South Carolina With this original and comprehensive analysis of Spanish pottery, a large collection of securely dated examples recovered from shipwrecks appears in print for the first time. Because wrecks provide solid dates and a quantity of artifacts that far exceeds the number normally found on land sites, significant new generalizations now can be made about the role of pottery in the period of the Spanish empire. Marken focuses on olive jars and tableware, the common pottery of the seaman and the everyday colonist. Heavily illustrated with drawings and photographs, this book will help create more accurate typologies and terminologies for these wares. Without condoning the practice of treasure hunting, Marken decided to incorporate finds from legally salvaged wrecks: "There is no question that scientific, archaeological investigation of shipwrecks brings us closer to answering the real questions about people," he writes. "Ignoring the legally recovered artifacts has left archaeologists years behind in better understanding certain aspects of Spanish material culture. It is within this framework of 'rescue archaeology' that my work was undertaken, in the firm belief that much of the material I was able to record would be unavailable for study a generation hence." Marken analyzes collections from eighteen shipwrecks that are housed in Britain, Bermuda, the Caribbean basin, and the states of Louisiana, Texas, and Florida. The ships were primarily engaged in trade with the New World or were transports and warships of the Spanish Armada. He discusses the origins of the ships, shipwreck sites, and events surrounding each wreck. Mitchell W. Marken received his Ph.D. from the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, and is currently a project manager for Mariah Associates, Inc., in Reno, Nevada. He consults frequently on shipwrecks and other submerged site projects such as UCLA/RAINPEG in Guatemala, the USS Somers in Mexico, and the Lock Tay Crannog, a submerged Bronze Age site in Scotland. He is currently producing a twenty-part television series entitled "Shipwreck Discoveries."

From aerial survey to zoology, Part I of this two-part encyclopedia covers all aspects of underwater archeology, treasure hunting and salvaging. For example, entries are included for different types of artifacts, notable treasure hunters, the various salvaging equipment, and techniques in mapping and excavating. Part II covers the shipwrecks themselves, dividing them into 13 geographical categories. Beginning with the northernmost category (Canada) and ending with the southernmost (South America), every known shipwreck--both identified and unidentified--receives an entry in alphabetical order under its appropriate geographical category. Entries are by name, such as Andrea Gail, Titanic, and Queen Ann's Revenge. Unidentified is used when a shipwreck's name remains unknown. Entries give the nationality (e.g., Spanish, British, American), type (schooner, frigate, brig are three), function (examples: slave transportation, piracy, fishing), location and history of the shipwreck.

For 250 years encrusted wonders have been turning up in fishermen's nets: everything imaginable from prehistoric animal bones to priceless Roman statues. Fishing trawlers annually sweep an area equivalent in size to half the world's continental shelves. Everything in the wake of these bulldozers of the deep is battered. A devastating trail of smashed shipwrecks runs from the North Sea to Malaysia. The profound threat of the global fishing industry remains a black hole in marine archaeology, poorly understood and unmanaged. Fishing and Shipwreck Heritage is the first global analysis of the threat of bottom fishing to underwater cultural heritage, examining the diversity, scale and implications on endangered finds and sites. Throughout, the key questions of whether it is too late to save the planet's three million wrecks and how sustainable management is achievable are debated.

Today, on the Keys between Key West and the mainland, some forty thousand residents and thousands of visitors fish, swim, sail and dive int he crystal clear waters off a tropical reef; relax in the sun adn cooling trade wind breezes; and sleep in the air-conditioned comfort of their homes and hotel rooms. On these same islands, as short a time as eighty years ago, fewer than three hundred inhabitants tried to eke out a living without benefit of electricity, running water, radios, or telephones. The stories of these hard pioneers and their predecessors, as far back as the Native Americans who lived on the Keys at least one thousand years ago, are told, many for the first time, in this book.
