Of all the great seafaring vessels of the Age of Discovery, not one has been recovered or evengiven the lack of detailed contemporary descriptionsaccurately represented. Then, in the mid-1990s, a sunken ship was found in a small, shallow gulf off the coast of Panama. Chronicling both dramatic history and present-day archaeological adventures, Klaus Brinkbaumer and Clemens Hoges reveal this artifact to be not only the oldest shipwreck ever recovered in the Western Hemisphere but also very likely the remains of the Vizcaina, one of the ships Christopher Columbus took on his last trip to the New World. The Voyage of the Vizcaina gives us an exciting tale of exploration and discovery, and the startling truths behind Columbus s final attempt to reach the East by going west."
