The underwater archaeology of Red Bay : Basque shipbuilding and whaling in the 16th century / Edited by Robert Grenier, Marc-André Bernier, Willis Stevens. : R62-389/2007E
In 1978 Parks Canada underwater archaeologists discovered the wreck of a 16th-century Basque whaling vessel in Red Bay, Labrador, believed to be the San Juan (1565). This five-volume publication is the culmination of over 25 years of research by associates and members of Parks Canada’s Underwater Archaeology Service. It describes not only the underwater archaeology as practiced at Red Bay but also 16th-century ship construction, whaling and material cultural studies.
