Wrecks of great historical significance

It seems that the remains of the HMS Beagle (ie the ship on which Charles Darwin travelled around the world) may have been found at the bottom of a marsh in Essex. Cool. I am not sure that it will fit properly in the Science Museum in Kensington, however. (And to tell the truth getting it through Chelsea might be a bit of a problem, too). Shame.

Update: A Samizdata editor also thought this was cool, so I posted a slightly expanded version of this post over there.
