Underwater survey to identify the wreck of HMS Sussex

Date: 1/6/2007

The 80-gun English warship was lost in the western Mediterranean in 1694. Research suggests she was carrying a cargo of coins. Odyssey Marine Exploration has a contract with the UK Government for the archaeological project of the HMS Sussex, and will carry out operations to locate and identifying the wreck. If it is the HMS Sussex, Spain will recognize that the wreck, its appurtenances and contents are the property of the UK by virtue of the rules of applicable International Law. Visit
