Mysterious treasure chest found in shipwreck

3 posts in this topic

During January of 1740, the Rooswijk, a Dutch East India Company trading ship, set sail for Jakarta and was never seen again. It wasn't until days later, when letters and personal items from the ship's passengers washed ashore, that the English government realized it had sunk to the bottom of the ocean just off the coast of Kent, England.

All of the sailors and passengers aboard the ship, nearly 250 in total, died.

Why the ship sank is a mystery, but a recent expedition to explore the ship's remains has turned up a number of artifacts, chief among them a large seaman's chest whose contents remain yet to be determined.
