Capt Kidd’s treasure found underwater
This treasure was being explored by the US explorer Barry Clifford and his team. They hope to find many more such bars of the ship. With the discovery of such treasures UK ambassador believes that Madagascar would soon become a more popular tourist destination place. The bars will be moved to the museum for exhibition. The Capt Kidd was born in Scotland’s Greenock or Dundee area during 1645. He was appointed by the British authorities to avoid piracy and capture enemy French ships but soon later he himself turned to be a pirate and was sentenced to death during 1697. The legend says that Capt Kidd has hidden much of his illegal treasures which had encouraged numerous treasure hunts around the world, even inspiring many authors like Robert Louis Stevenson while writing Treasure Island.
