The Lost Fleet of Columbus

about the documentary

Christopher Columbus’ second voyage to the Americas is almost unknown…and for good reason.  In their attempt to establish the first ever colony in the New World, little remains but an abandoned site, a vast graveyard, and some 6 ships lost and never recovered.  Now, on land and in the sea, archaeologists and explorers attempt to reconstruct the events of the first, failed European colony in America.
