Mexican marine archaeologists have located the wreck of the 19th-century British ship HMS Forth, which sank off the Yucatan Peninsula 164 years ago, the National Anthropology and History Institute, or INAH, said.
The ship, which belonged to the Royal Mail Steam Packet Company, sank after hitting the Alacranes reef.
HMS Forth went down on the night of Jan. 14, 1849, while sailing to Bermuda.
