Colon I look for the three stone skull. The caravel of the 15th and 16th centuries was a ship with a distinctive shape and admirable qualities. A gently sloping bow and single stern castle were prominent features of this vessel, and it carried a mainmast and a mizzen mast that were generally lateen-rigged.
Christopher Columbus, son of a Genoan weaver, had been thinking about this project for 15 years and then spent eight years of his life looking for someone who could accept it.
The report of his triumph lives through two documents of the time: one is the caravels log-book and the other is the touching biography of Christopher Columbus, written. About The Book.
