Новый свет получал все в испанских амфорах
Spanish olive jar fragments are also common at Mission San Luis. The large amphora-shaped vessels were manufactured primarily in Spain and were used to transport a variety of products including olives and olive oil, hence the name "olive jar." These vessels come in both glazed and unglazed versions, and were made in a range of shapes during the mission period (Drawer 3). It was common for broken olive jars to be recycled as roof vaulting, floor pavers, and for other practical applications. Olive jars made their way to the New World as part of the bi-annual shipments from Spain that usually sailed in March and September. The fleet divided in the Caribbean and visited trade fairs throughout the New World where they exchanged European manufactured goods for local products, as well as Oriental commodities such as porcelain (Drawer 5) that arrived in Acapulco via the Manila Galleon. The Spanish ships then rendezvoused at Havana for their homeward voyage. As a result, Havana became a major commercial entrepot that was a short sail away from Apalachee Province.
