Dutch East India Company Shipbuilding: The Archaeological Study of Batavia and Other Seventeenth-Century VOC Ships by Wendy van Duivenvoorde

Eight months into its maiden voyage to the Indies, the Dutch East India Company's Batavia sank on June 4, 1629 on Morning Reef in the Houtman Abrolhos off the western coast of Australia.

Wendy van Duivenvoorde's five-year study was aimed at reconstructing the hull of Batavia, the only excavated remains of an early seventeenth-century Indiaman to have been raised and conserved in a way that permits detailed examination, using data retrieved from the archaeological remains, interpreted in the light of company archives, ship journals, and Dutch texts on shipbuilding of this period. Over two hundred tables, charts, drawings, and photographs are included.
