Early modern reused ship timbers from Boqueirão do Duro, Lisbon, Portugal.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


Archaeological excavations conducted at the riverside area of
Lisbon (Boqueirão do Duro, Santos) in 2016 revealed archaeological remains from the 18th to the 19th centuries, including the remains of a late 19th-century factory named Vulcano e Colares built on top of an ancient beach and later port.
The waterfront archaeological contexts were wide-ranging.
There were several timbers from a large ship dismantled on the
beach, port structures that reused ship elements, and an assemblage of pre-shaped timbers. Among the dismantled elements were keels, keelsons, stems, floor timbers, futtocks, hull planks, wooden sheathing, and an uncommon find, three complete
bilge pumps.
