Neither weekend scuba divers nor full-time adventurers could choose a better site than Lake Erie for exploring the watery past for the recovery of sunken wealth.

Since this fourth largest of the five Great Lakes is warm and shallow, storms rise quickly and have caused hundreds of ships to sink. Lake Erie holds countless such sunken craft that are easily within reach of inexpensive underwater equipment.

Discovered in 1669 by the French explorer Louis Joliet, Lake Erie covers 9,889 square miles. More than half of this is in the United States, the remainder in Canada.
