TREASURE AT THE BOTTON OF THE SEA


In the 17th century, there were many Spanish sailing ships called galleons that carried gold and jewels from the
Americas to Europe. On September 4 1622, two galleons called the Nuestra Seora de Atocha and the Santa
Margarita left Cuba for Spain. Just a day later, both ships sank during a terrible storm. Although the lost ships were
known to contain huge amounts of treasure, nobody disturbed them for the next 350 years. Despite numerous efforts,
no one was able to find them and they became known as the 'Ghost Galleons'.
In 1969, a treasure hunter named Mel Fisher set up a company, 'Treasure Salvors', to search for the 'Ghost Galleons'.
Fisher used to be a farmer, but since 1962 he has worked at sea searching for lost ships. He was so successful at this
that he could afford to set up his own company. His boat, Holly's Folly, began the search in 1969 in an area called
the Middle Keys, near Florida. Fisher had studied diaries and reports from the 17th century and according to them
the Atocha had sunk here. But Fisher found nothing and he decided to get the help of Eugene Lyon, an expert in
17th-century Spanish history. Lyon soon realised what had gone wrong. Some of the islands in the area had been
renamed and Holly's Folly was looking in the wrong place. Lyon redirected the search to the tiny Marquesas Keys.
It was two more years, however, before the team found a few silver coins and gold bars from the Atocha. Then, in
1973, they found 4000 silver coins and three silver bars stamped, with numbers that proved they came from the
Atocha. The treasure was extremely valuable but the ship itself was nowhere to be found.
It was expensive to continue the search but Fisher didn't want to give up. He concentrated instead on finding the
Margarita and started looking in an area called the Quicksands. To start with, just a few pieces of treasure were
discovered by the team and then, at last, they found some half-buried pieces of wood. It was the Margarita. The
divers continued taking objects from the Margarita for another two years. Stories about the find appeared in
newspapers around the world and the treasure was eventually sold for 25 million. Fisher was rich and famous but he
was still determined to find the Atocha and in 1985 he continued his search.
This time he concentrated on an area called the Hawk Channel. Finally on July 20, Fisher found hundreds of silver
bars and chests of silver coins lying on the seabed close to the Atocha. It had taken 16 years, but at last he had found
both
