Archaeologists have discovered two of the 16th-century to anchor off the coast of Mexico, which may be of the ships, which are to be used, by the conquistador Hernán Cortés.

The iron anchors were found from the Villa Rica in the state of Veracruz, Mexico: Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia (INAH) announced Tuesday.

One of the posts is 12 feet long, with a width of 5 feet between the tips. The other post is for 8.5 m in length, with a width of 4.7 metres. A few of the bumps in the road, which runs parallel to the anchor’s arms, it is a typical 16th-century ground anchors, according to experts in the field.

The researchers say it is too early to say whether or not the anchors of the ships, which are to be used, by Cortes, who led the conquest of Spain, even though they all agree that he was sinking his ships in that place. Cortés lands in Veracruz with 500 a year ago, in April, 1519, and deliberately, sank 10 of his ships to prevent his forces to leave. In August, 1521, he defeated the Aztec empire.

Another, smaller anchor was discovered in the area in 2018, with laboratory analysis showing that it is the remains of the wooden stock of a 15th-century boom in the Cantabrian cornice region of northern Spain.

“It is not clear if all three posts are part of the same historical moment, but rather their alignment to the south-west is consistent with the logic of the Villa Rica as a port, protecting ships from the north and north-west winds,” said project co-director Roberto Junco, D. Ph., the head of the underwater archaeology office of INAH in a statement.

The discovery is sure to cast more light on an area that has played an important role in the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire.

The researchers are planning to study in 15 of the other “anomalies” on the ocean floor, which can also be a anchor during the next swim season. This can lead to marine archaeologists, wood hull of the Cortes,’ the sunken ships.

“The time of the Conquest of Mexico was a seminal event in human history, and in these wrecks, if we can find them, are the images of the cultural collision that led to what we now call the West, geo-political and social talk,” said project co-director Frederick Hanselmann, D. Ph., the University of Miami, in a statement.

In a separate project, in 2017, when the marine archaeologists have discovered a century-old anchor, located in the Caribbean area, which she said could be from one of Christopher Columbus’ ships.
