A 17th century shipwreck found off the coast of Panama is believed to have belonged to famed pirate Henry Morgan.

Morgan is perhaps better known these days as the face of a brand of rum, but in his day he was one of the most feared privateers in the world.

The wreck comes from Morgan's invasion and sacking of Panama in 1671.
