This undated handout photo provided by NOAA shows the hull remains of the so-called 'Black Rock Wreck'
measured and compared to the dimensions of known shipwrecks off East Caicos.

Through a meticulous process of elimination, the archaeological team was able to rule out all of the ships except
the Spanish slave ship Trouvadore.

Archaeologists have found the remains of a Spanish slave ship that wrecked in the Caribbean 167 years ago.

The 192 African survivors settled in the Turks and Caicos islands, where many residents today are their descendants.
