On June 7, Colombia’s army shared unprecedented images of the legendary San Jose galleon shipwreck, hidden underwater for three centuries and believed to have been carrying riches worth billions of dollars in today’s money. Remotely operated vehicles were sent to the wreck at a depth of almost 950 meters (3,100 feet) off Colombia’s Caribbean coast. Cannons are visible alongside porcelain crockery, pottery, glass bottles and also gold pieces. A part of the bow can be seen covered in algae and shellfish, as well as the remains of the frame of the hull. Authorities said they had also discovered two more shipwrecks during their observation mission.
