Description

Storms and other dangers have sent thousands of ships to watery graves at the bottom of the sea. Many vessels carried valuable cargo, such as precious metals and gems, or items of historical interest, such as dishes and tools. The tragedies of these ships produce treasure years later, when scientists, archaeologists, and treasure hunters discover their lost cargos. "Sunken Treasure "takes the reader on the journey from disaster to discovery, and explores some of the oceans' most exciting underwater treasures.
