The presentation describes whaling by the Basques, both before and during their operations in the area of Red Bay (Canada), as well as the land-/maritime-based archaeology which began in the 1970s in the Red Bay area to reconstruct the Basque operations there. The location of the wreck of the Basque whaler, San Juan, was found, artifacts recovered, and much was learned about whaler design and construction.
The presentation consists of 70 slides. The first eight pages of the downloadable file is the text which accompanied the presentation, and the remaining 70 pages are the presentation slides.
