Again a new book, even if there is little time for me to read. This wreck, found near Newport in 2002, was completely unknown to me. The ship was built in northern Spain around 1450 and foundered during repairs in the port area of Newport around 1470. It is believed that it fell into English hands or was bought by the English. One possible owner may be the Earl of Warwick, as it is already in the upper range of tonnage with its 160 t.

Evan T. Jones & Richard Stone (eds.): The World of the Newport Medieval Ship. Trade, Politics and Shipping in the Mid-Fifteenth Century. 2018. 276 p. Softcover

The book consists mostly of text, there are only a few images and is also a bit expensive at Amazon at € 36.50. But the research project needs a lot of money, so you can understand that in a way. Twelve authors contribute the results of their previous research, which of course does not only relate to the specific ship or its remains, but also place it in a larger political, economic and social context.

Very interesting video - and it looks like an interesting read -> many thanks for sharing with us
Yes, but one must keep in mind, that it is not a book written for modellers. I shared it because of the historical value of the wreck. It seems to be the most important find of the period (mid 15th century). The recontruction of the hull is very reliable and leads to the question of whether the proportions of the Mataro Model are possibly distorted. Both, the Newport Ship and the Mataro Model are of spanish origin.

Greetings, Hartmut
