Archaeologists Believe They've Found Captain Morgan's Shipwreck

Yes, THAT Captain Morgan. He was real, and he was a real, ruthless pirate. Archaeologists now believe that they've discovered his 440-year-old ship sunk off the coast of Panama. The liquor company even went along for the ride.

Then scientists say the ship was one of five that ran aground near the Lajas Reef. And you could smell the treasure. Near the wreck was a series of cargo boxes and chests, all unopened and ready for plundering research. If there's anything that looks like this, there's plenty of cause for excitement.

For Captain Morgan USA's part, they hope the chests hold a whole lot of booze. [The Daily, Discovery News]
