REAL CAPTAIN MORGAN — For the third year in a row, with the help of Diageo and its Captain Morgan brand, a team of U.S. archaeologists returned to the mouth of the Chagres River in Panama in search of real-life buccaneer Captain Henry Morgan’s lost fleet. The search began in September 2010, when the team discovered six iron cannons belonging to Morgan off the coast of Panama, and continued last summer with the discovery of a 17th century wooden shipwreck, potentially one of the five ships Morgan lost — which included his flagship “Satisfaction” — in 1671 on the shallow Lajas Reef.
