Christopher Columbus Santa Maria found

Christopher Columbus Santa Maria found
May 2014
 Wreck of Christopher Columbus Santa Maria found near Haiti.
The Santa Maria left Spain in August 1492, along with La Pinta and La Nina, sailing westward
It was the largest ship in the expedition, about 117ft (36m) long
The ship ran aground on a reef near Haiti on Christmas Day, 1492
Columbus told his crew to strip timbers from the ship to build an outpost or fort nearby, leaving sailors behind while he returned to Spain
The fort, known as La Navidad (Birth of the Christ Child), was found destroyed upon Columbus's return to the island he called Hispanola

A US underwater investigator has said he believes he has found the wreck of the Santa Maria, the flagship of Christopher Columbus's famed expedition.
Barry Clifford said evidence strongly suggests a ruin off Haiti's north coast is the Santa Maria.

Mr Clifford's team has measured and taken photos of the wreck.
He says he is working with the Haitian government to protect the site for a more detailed investigation.

The Santa Maria, along with the La Nina and La Pinta, were part of Columbus's expedition in 1492, which explored islands in the Caribbean in an attempt to find a westward passage to Asia.
The flagship was lost during the expedition, shortly before Columbus returned to Spain.
