Geologists working for De Beers were stunned when they discovered a shipwreck buried in the beach. archaeologists were called in, they uncovered not only the oldest shipwreck ever to be found off Africa’s coast but also more than 22 tons of ingots, 6 cannons, swords, thousands of gold coins traced back to King João III, After some investigation it was ascertained that the ship was the Bom Jesus, a Portuguese ship which sailed in 1533 and disappeared off the coast of West Africa.
The image I chose for this assignment is a picture of slaves on a boat to the New World. The reason I picked this was because when reading Chapter 2, I could not believe the way they were treated.
