Hurrah for the pirate king!

Diver and shipwreck  hunter Todd Stevens thinks he has found a wreck worthy of Hollywood: The John, the craft of notorious privateer John Mucknell, known as the Pirate King of Scilly.

Stevens' ship was discovered off the coast of Cornwall, complete with "a treasure trove of artefacts, including a thin silver coin imprinted during the reign of Charles I." The John was run aground in 1645, but its location has always been a mystery. If confirmed, the wreck will be protected, allowing Stevens to salvage what he can.
