A sensational archaeological find off the English coast was kept secret for years


The “HMS Gloucester” was a ship with a long history. It was built in 1652 for the British Navy and took part in numerous wars, such as the war between Spain and England from 1654 to 1660. Almost 20 years later, in May 1682, the future King James II wanted to sail from Portsmouth to Edinburgh with his court . At the start of their journey, they had no idea that at the end of this journey the “Gloucester” would only be a wreck and more than 100 people would die.
