Shipwreck Blog: Namibian Portuguese Wreck

I blogged about this particular shipwreck before, it was discovered by diamond miners on the coast of Namibia. More information has been discovered, it is 16th-century Portuguese, the earliest one found from this era, and may be associated with the exploration voyages of Bartholomew Diaz.

Apparently journalists will be allowed to photograph and inspect the wreck in the next week or so, so more information may be available then, hopefully including photos.
