The Belinho 1 Shipwreck
Ana Almeida and Filipe Castro
In the Winter of 2014 a storm exposed the remains of a shipwreck. Pewter plates, ship timbers and iron concretions were thrown on the eroded beach at Praia do Belinho, Esposende, Portugal.
A second possible shipwreck site – suggested by a large number of coeval amphorae shards – appeared nearby and the two probably shipwreck sites were designated as Belinho 1 and Belinho 2.
The study of this shipwreck was started by the team of engineers in charge of the excavation of the Cais do Sodré subway station.
