Is this Captain Henry Morgan's ship hull?

Archaeologists from Texas State University believe they have uncovered a ship found near the site where Welsh Admiral Sir Henry Morgan's ships wrecked in 1671.

The infamous privateer - widely known as Captain Morgan - was on his way to Panama City with his men.

The researchers say they might have found a section of the hull as well as cargo boxes and coral-covered chests.
