Reuters reports that artifacts from the 250 year old shipwreck of the British flagship HMS Victory have been recovered. The wreck was discovered by Odyssey Marine Exploration in the Channel Islands, between southern Great Britain and Northern France.
Odyssey Marine is the same team that uncovered 17 tons of gold and silver off the coast of Spain last year. Sounds like they did their paperwork first this time. More than a billion dollars in gold coins are assumed to be part of the holdings.
