SAINT MARIE DE MARCEAU

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  SEINT MARIE DE MARCEAU
DESCRIPTION + /

1382 wreck of Portuguese cargo vessel which arrrived safely in Mount's Bay, but which appears to have been broken up by local people plundering the cargo and gear of the ship. There was a cannon on board, either as cargo, or suggesting that the vessel was armed. The rest of the cargo incorporated contemporary military equipment, e.g. swords and lances, crossbows and arrows, perhaps suggesting that she was a troop ship, as well as a commercial cargo of rosin, pitch, copper and woollen cloth. Constructed of wood, she was a sailing vessel.
