Mysteries from the Lost Galleon: The Manila Galleon San Filipe, 1573-1576 | Contemporary Historians at the Presidio | 2013
The fate of the galleon San Felipe, lost without trace on its journey from Manila to Mexico in 1576, was recently revealed through a dozen expeditions to a shipwreck site in Baja California.
This illustrated presentation by Edward Von der Porten (consultant to the National Geographic Society) recalls the San Felipe’s saga, shows how she was rediscovered, and describes recovered porcelains and other artifacts.
