Captain Morgan's Treasure Discovered Near Panama By Captain Morgan Rum Funded Team. Team of U.S. archaeologists map the 17th century shipwreck discovered at the mouth of the Chagres River in Panama during expedition for Captain Henry Morgan's lost fleet.
In 1996 someone found a Viking hoard at Westerklief on the former island of Wieringen, The Netherlands. The treasure contained Carolingian and Arab coins, bracelets and silver ingots, all buried in an earthenware pot. The coins date the treasure at around 850. Wieringen at that time was a part of Frisia. In 1997 some loose objects like coins and rings were found, in 1999 a second treasure , and in 2001 a third, all on the same tiny island.
