The 2-century-old objects recovered are now being treated in chemical baths to remove rust and other accretions. This is necessary for their detailed study. Among the objects found In almost perfect condition after more than two centuries at the bottom of the aea was a "small-axe." which was a standard weapon on 18th-century warships for boarding parties, and Is very similar in appearance to the American Indian tomahawk. Sunk in timbers were found many old "pieces of eight," silver coins of approximately the value cf the American dollar, which fig ure prominently in pirate stores.
