Captain Morgan’s Cannons Found

Date: 1/6/2011

What may be the first artefacts from legendary pirate Henry Morgan’s shipwrecked vessels near Panama were discovered. The cannons, if Morgan’s, would be the first artefacts of his found near Panama. The ships were abandoned, and treasure hunters picked through the reef over the years. The cannons were found covered by layers of sedimentary rock in shallow water. At least two other guns are buried nearby, as well as an anchor, ceramics and bottles. Metal detectors indicated that more artefacts may be buried deeper.
