CENTURIES-OLD SHIPWRECK UNCOVERED IN ANTIGUA

Leading the underwater team was Jean-Sebastian Guibert, an associate professor at the University of the French West Indies in Martinique. He describes finding the ship - using high-tech sonar equipment and a magnetometer - as "like hitting the jackpot".
