The Shipwreck Slobodna: An Archaeological Study, Material Culture Comparison & Digital Exhibit Design
Ships in 3-5 business days
The late-nineteenth century Polish cotton carrier, Slobodna, was one of the last sailing ships in a critical period of international trade. On her last voyage Slobodna was hauling a full load of cotton from New Orleans to the industrial mills of Northern Europe. Wrecked on the outer edge of the Florida Keys the shipwreck Slobodna today delights scuba divers with the remains of the once mighty ship. This monograph looks at the site formation process and comparative historic artifact collections in an effort to better understand the shipwreck site and ship's role in history.
