ABSTRACT
The article offers information on a shipwreck treasure discovered by Odyssey Marine Exploration (OME). A total 500,000 gold and silver coins were discovered in a wreck at an undisclosed site off the southwestern tip of Cornwall, England. The company used remotely operated vehicles to recover the treasure. Marine archaeologists have expressed concern about possible damage inflicted during the salvage operations, prompting them to call for international protection agreements to be drawn up. It is thought that the wreck could be that of the Merchant Royal, an English ship known as the Eldorado of the seas.
