Schiedam Prize Designated Historic Wreck Site

Desk-Based Assessment

By Kevin Camidge

The desk-based assessment of the Schiedam Prize designated wreck was commissioned by English Heritage and prepared by Kevin Camidge, as part of the National Heritage Protection Plan work on submerged heritage assets. This vessel was originally a Dutch flyboat or "flyut". It had been captured first by pirates and then subsequently by a British ship. It was wrecked in 1684 on the return voyage from the evacuation of Tangiers, carrying naval workmen and theire families, supplies and horses. This assessment covers an overview of the site's significance, a survey of reports about the site, the history of the vessel and its wreck, evidence from the site, including finds and discussion of the threats that face it.
