Old wreck is found - level 1

A ship is in the Caribbean. It is a Spanish ship. It is full of gold and silver. The ship sinks. Around 600 people die. This happens in 1708.

Now, people find the wreck. They study it. They see cannons. The cannons are bronze.

People want to find the gold and silver, but they must keep looking.

Difficult words: sink (to go down in the water), wreck (a broken thing like a ship or a car), cannon (a big heavy thing on a ship which can shoot giant balls).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
