Shipwreck found in Tonga

In 1806, pirates aboard a ship said to be loaded with copper, silver and gold met their match when they arrived in Tonga. After plundering treasures from other ships, the British privateer was attacked by warriors and scuttled. Now, local diver Darren Rice thinks they've found it on a reef just off the island of Ha'ano.
