“A remarkable gumbo — history, adventure, and science combined with an unrelentingly good yarn.”

— John Bredar, Executive Producer
National Geographic Film and Television

“This is not just another oceanic treasure-hunt. It is a unique and dramatic blend of historical research, biographical analyses, dogged and determined detective-work, and revolutionary deep-sea technology.”

— Sir John Rawlins, Vice Admiral
British Royal Navy

“In many ways the incredible story of Odyssey’s discovery and excavation of the Republic is the history of America. With mesmerizing technology and sensational finds, Lost Gold brilliantly brings to life the hopes, fears, and tragedy of a fledgling nation, encapsulated by one shipwreck.”

— Dr. Sean Kingsley, Editor
Minerva: The International Review
of Ancient Art and Archaeology
