    One of mine is diving for buried deep sea treasure & my favorite Shipwreck is The Atocha.

    This page tells the story of the dangerous search and amazing discovery of the Atocha.


    Has anybody besides me ever wished they were treasure hunters, looking for sunken treasure, discovering something that has been buried under the sea for many years & to be the first to look upon it again?


    What's your favorite historical fantasy/dream and have you ever lived it/done it? :eek:

    I enjoy travel and envision myself as seeing all the great centers of history. Well, not all, of course, but a whole bunch!

    Still have many to go, but I'm working hard at fulfilling that dream! I've already stood on:
    Pyramids in Egypt
    Parthenon in Athens
    Colosseum in Rome
    Great Wall in Beijing
    Kremlin in Moscova
    Temple Mount in Jerusalem
    Pearl Harbor in Hawaii
    Countless sites in the USA

    I've always had this fantasy of being able to live out an entire lifetime in 10 different historical ages. For example, being a young Roman boy during the years of Caesar.

    Or, being a member of a raiding party on a Viking ship.

    Or, a court servant during the height of Egypt's power.

    Or a musician during the royal period in Japanese history.

    It would have been fascinating to have been with Cortes in the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan, prior to hostillities with the natives. The Spaniards were there, as guests, for three or four months before fighting broke out.
