ABSTRACT
The General Books of Galleys contain detailed lists of the prisoners, slaves and crew taken on board. These books, found in the collection of the Naval Archive of Cartagena, cover the period 1624-1748. This documentation is priceless in value; the information it contains not only gives testimony to the fighting that took place over several centuries between the kingdoms and nations on the shores of the Mediterranean, but is undoubtedly one of the richest sources available for the study of many aspects of the modern age. This study analyses the documentation and examines in detail the aspects that had the greatest impact on the crews, for example, the evolution of the rowing system.
