Shipwreck The Gloucester hailed most important since Mary Rose

BBC News

The discovery of a shipwrecked warship that sank while carrying a future King has been hailed the most important maritime find since the Mary Rose.

"The Gloucester ran aground off the coast of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, in 1682, nearly killing the Duke of York, who became King James II of England.

The find, which was discovered by divers in 2007, has only just been revealed due to security reasons.

Maritime expert Prof Claire Jowitt said it was of "international importance".

The treasure-laden San Jose galleon, the estimated value of which has gone up considerably over the year, was discovered in 2015. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-35014600

What you've almost certainly seen recently is that while "monitoring" that ship they've discovered two more nearby. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-61722200
