    Maybe, but treasure hunters will always find a way to loot an archaeological site.

    Years ago (some time before the ships were found in 2014-15) I read the fantastic novel "The Terror" which is based on the people and circumstances around these lost ships. Fantastic book from Dan Simmons that is worth a read. It starts out as very accurate and well researched historical fiction but things go off the rails and it ends up in the horror genre. They made a TV mini-series based on the book a year or so ago that was very well reviewed. Seems like a great opportunity to jump into either of these over the holiday weekend.

    Wow! This is a big deal! Two days ago I finished reading a Clive Cussler novel Arctic Drift the plot of the story centered around these two ships and the tragic expedition. Now I come across this.!

    Dirk Pitt saved the world....again.

    Divers must have a permit to dive on the Terror. Further, it requires perfect conditions. Meeting those together could be difficult. Making the dive without a permit will get the divers arrested and charged a $500,000 fine.

    Trying to do this dive without perfect conditions has a death factor that should be a deterrent.
