Notes :

The site is the wreck of a late 16th or early 17th century merchant carrack, possibly of Spanish origin. It was located in 1984 during the search for the source of Roman pottery brought to the surface by oyster fishermen's trawls. The wreck, which may be that of the Santa Lucia lost in 1567, was partially excavated by the Isle of Wight Maritime Heritage Project during the mid-1980's.
ADU designation: February 1, 1985; 1984 No. 3; 1984/1963; Original Designation Order (April 11, 1984; 1984 No. 1; 1984/521) revoked and wreck re-designated as above to correct an error in position.
ADU licences: 1984-8 excavation; 1989-93 survey.
