Shipwreck Discovered 发现遇难船

Divers have already found some items from the site which lead them to believe it was carrying supplies from the King of France to relieve Charles Edward Stuart, or Bonnie Prince Charlie, when he was in hiding after the Jacobite Rebellion.

The team says that in particular, a rare ring seal of Mary Queen of Scots, may have been carried on board the vessel as proof to the young pretender that the intentions of the ship and its crew were genuine.

But the name of the ship is not known, and thus far, comparatively few items have been recovered.

If this really is as historically significant a find as its backers suggest, there are still many questions to be answered.
