Offshore of Padre Island lie the oldest verified shipwrecks discovered in
the Western Hemisphere. Believed to have foundered in a storm about
1554, the ships for the last two summers have been the object of an under-
water archeology project sponsored by the Texas Antiquities Committee.
Plans for the 1973 study included exploration of three ships thought to be
from the fleet.
A report of the findings from one of the three sites is planned for the
summer, 1974, and a traveling display for schools and other interested
