Arqueometalurgia de un naufragio del siglo XVIII

Details

This book presents the research results carried on the metallic artefacts from the British HMS Swift, lost off Puerto Deseado (Province of Santa Cruz, Argentina) in 1770. The artefacts are classified typologically and in terms of their physiochemical characteristics, manufacturing processes and technological adaptations to the maritime environment are analysed, as well as evidence relating to technological innovation, repair and recycling of artefacts. The results are compared with those from other contemporary British naval contexts.
