William Kidd´s Infamous Treasure


In 2015 a team of Madagascan underwater explorers, led by an American archaeologist found some treasure that allegedly belonged to one of the most famous pirates of all time, the Scotsman William Kidd.

A silver bar weighing 50kilos was recovered from the sea floor near the island of Santa Maria off the northern coast of Madagascar. According to some historians, Kidd was a Scottish sailor on the hunt for pirates who in the end turned coat and joined them. He was hanged in 1701.

Clifford believes there may be more bars among the wreckage.
