Summary:A treasure hunt is exciting and fun, and there are many kinds of treasures to discover. A hurricane off the coast of Florida in 1662 caused the Atocha, a Spanish galleon, to sink. This book describes the many-years-long search for the treasure believed to be on it. What could be left of a ship that sank in 1622? Video footage shows many treasures and artifacts found by divers who located the Atocha. To explore the subject of sunken treasure further, Dr. Robert Ballard, who located and explored the Titanic -, the most famous shipwreck in history -, shares the technology he used in his search. This PDF includes 5 activities: All that Glitters; Metal Detectives; Breaking the Surface, Grid Work, and Giving Treasure a Lift.
