Notes :

The site is most probably the wreck of the Danish warship Wrangels Palais which sank in 1687 after running aground while pursuing Barbary pirates in thick fog. Preliminary surveys were undertaken in 1990 and 1993. Two bronze cannon were raised from the site before it was designated.
ADU designation: January 10, 1991; 1990 No. 3; 1990/2573; Original Designation Order (August 18, 1990; 1990 No. 2; 1990/1694) revoked and the site re-designated as above to correct an error in position.
ADU licences: 1991 survey; 1993-4 survey.
