These photos were taken during July and August 1997 as
the excavation team continued with their work on the site.


Emanuel Point Image       The exhibit of artifacts from the Emanuel Point Ship on display at the Bowden Building in downtown historic Pensacola is attracting many visitors. This portion of the display features iron, lead, and stone ammunition from the stern of the ship.
A full-scale reproduction of the ship's rudder was built for the exhibit. The actual rudder, which became unshipped when the vessel wrecked, was found near the sternpost, where it once hung.               Emanuel Point Image
Emanuel Point Image     Recently discovered in the bow was this woven matting of unknown function. Found in association with the ship's galley, the fabric may have been used as packing or storage material. Portions will be sent for botanical analysis to determine the origin of the material, and to better understand its use.
