Salvaging Spanish Sunken Treasure

Long-time treasure hunter Margaret Weller, aka “Lady Goldiver,” has been salvaging Spanish galleons off the coast of Florida since the 1970s. Along with her now deceased husband, the legendary treasure seeker Bob “Frogfoot” Weller, they've recovered enough gold, silver, jewelry and artifacts to fill a museum. Margaret shares her amazing experience working as a treasure seeker, shows off some of the artifacts she recovered, and shares a few of her many interesting and funny stories relating to her career salvaging sunken treasure. An informal walk-thru of the ongoing exhibit Treasure! with the presenter, follows the talk.
