      Human remains found on 18th century Royal Navy wreck
      The Guardian [UK], 26 February 2010

      Human remains have been found in the deep sea wreck of one of the
      mightiest and most advanced fighting ships to have served in the Royal
      Navy. A skull and rib bones were discovered under a cannon by marine
      archaeologists investigating the wreck of HMS Victory - the direct
      predecessor of Nelson's flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar - which went
      down during violent storms in 1744. Greg Stemm, chief executive officer
      of Odyssey, said: "This is the first time that we have come across a
      human skull and remains of this type." It is highly unusual for remains
      to be found in a wreck so deep, they would normally be eaten by the
      crabs, eels and fish.
