The late 19th and early 20th -century shipping industry experienced a transition in ship technology from sail to steam propulsion. This thesis examines the continued use of iron-hulled barques during this transitional period, with a discussion of previously studied examples of the remains of iron-hulled, sailing barques from the 19th century. Archaeological and archival research gathered on Glamis strongly supports the hypothesis that the shipwreck site GC013 is the iron-hulled barque, Glamis, wrecked in 1913 off the coast of Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, B.W.I. Despite the advances of steamship technology, some countries not only continued but also expanded their use of sailing ships. I describe and explain this practice using Norway as a paradigm.
