In September 2004, after a decade of research, archeologists with the Turks & Caicos National Museum and Ships of Discovery located the remains an old wooden ship, along with those of several newer vessels, during an underwater survey off the coast of East Caicos. The team returned to the site in 2006 and 2008 to conduct more surveys and test excavations in an effort to make a positive identification of the wooden wreck.
Archival documents refered to Breezy Point and/or East Caicos as the wreck location of Trouvadore.
The team used a combination of high and low technology to locate ships and debris fields in the underwater search area.

At least three shipwrecks have been found at East Caicos. How can we identify any of these as Trouvadore’s remains?
