"In Europe they harvested so
much timber from the forest that
the large trees were gone," Bratten said. "Here they've got huge
trees which they could work."
During each of the past four
summers, archaeologists and
students have uncovered a bit
more of the ship, estimated to be
about 120 feet long, in shallow
water near Civil War-era Fort
Plckens on Santa Rosa Island.
State archaeologists located
the Rosario in 1992 under tons of
silt. For six years, however, it
took a back seat to an older wreck
of a Spanish galleon in another
part ofthe bay.
Known as the Emanuel Point
wreck, the galleon sank in 1559,
when Pensacola was first settled
