Talk:500 million US dollars worth of treasure found off coast of Cornwall UK
the "off the coast of Cornwall" is speculation by Dr Lane Brunner (reported in the BBC article) and is not independently confirmed, i think. the details of the treasure are all sourced from Odyssey's press release, and again, are not independently confirmed. –Doldrums(talk) 08:47, 19 May 2007 (UTC)
- The article doesn't say "the wreck is off the coast of Cornwall", it says "Reports say" (which they do), and "is believed to be" (which it is). And Brunner is "quoted" as saying whatever, his opinion; the article doesn't use it as a statement of fact.
If you want to get picky about sources, what source says it's the HMS Sussex? The Guardian's article metions the Sussex in the last couple of paragraphs, but as a bit of background into what Odyssey is currently doing, it doesn't even suggest it's the wreck that was found (one sentence says "Odyssey believes those coins could also fetch more than $500 million" - it can't be also if this is that ship). --220.127.116.11 10:29, 19 May 2007 (UTC).
- Is there not some confusion in preparing the precis of the reports here. The Guardian article refers to Odyssey also working on the Sussex wreck; there is no indication that there could be confusion as to whether the ship could be the Sussex. The article clearly states, and the Wikipedia article on the Sussex also clearly indicates that the Sussex sank off Gibralta. I have therefore deleted this incorrect element in the story and the now unnecessary picture. CWiltshire 11:15, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

Gold plates edit
Perhaps they already know this, but it's sure not in the history books.or as shown on TV. The silver and gold traveled from Mesopotamia to the Inca empire. It was hammered into religious writings. The Spanish came and melted it down and coined it while still in S. America. They shipped the coins back to Spain but the ship sunk. (praise God) One religious plate escaped and was burried in New York State (USA) Please review the movie Treasure Quest (series 1episode 12) 'Battle for the Black Swan Talk to any Mormon priest, they know all about this. It is how their religion started. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) 13:15, 2 May 2013
