Lecture 3: Archaeological Science, Globalisation and the Atlantic-Indian Ocean System – Oranjemund Shipwreck

Shadreck Chirikure

This lecture -- the third in a four-part series -- will take place in person at ISAW. Registration is required; click through for the registration link. In 2008, routine sand dredging for diamond mining exposed a Portuguese ship resting on the Atlantic ocean floor since sinking in 1533 on its way to India. The remnants of the Bom Jesus as the ship was known were recovered from Oranjemund, a small town near the Orange River Delta in Namibia.
