On its return trip from the New World in 1656, the treasure-laden Spanish galleon Nuestra Señora de las Maravillas was lost on the Little Bahama Bank. Now Allen Exploration is excavating surviving sections of the wreck.
James Sinclair will be returning to Charlottesville to share his experiences tracking and preserving treasure from the Maravillas as well as some of the most famous shipwrecks in the world. Sinclair is an ocean explorer and marine archaeologist, whose career includes working with the famous treasure hunter Mel Fisher in his quest for the Atocha, an investigation into Ben Franklin’s “Pirate Fleet”, and a visit to the wreck site of the RMS Titanic.
Jim is rumored to be brining artifacts with him – this is definitely a night you don’t want to miss!
