Discover more than 8,000 finds from over 150 shipwrecks. Marvel at the only intact barrel of coins ever recovered from a wreck. There are gold bullion bars, ingots of copper, ship surgeon’s medicine bottles, barnacled tea sets, corroded cutlery, stacks of cannon balls and once-deadly shells and shot!
