Published on May 26th, 2009 | by Admin


Divers in Wales believe they have discovered a ship which was sent to help Bonnie Prince Charlie after his loss at the battle of Culloden in 1746.

Researchers have started an underwater excavation project at the site of an 18th Century vessel that foundered off Anglesey and is thought to have been carrying gold and supplies from the King of France.

It is thought the ship dates from the time that the Young Pretender was hiding on the Scottish Islands after the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745.
