Sunk French and English warships may be found

Researchers may have found the wrecks of two 16th century French and English warships sunk in battle off Brest.

Cordelière and the Regent were joined by grappling hooks in 1512 when the French ship exploded, sinking the Regent, killing 1,500 on the two vessels.

Two anchors have been found but the teams from UBS and Ifremer have not recovered cannons to prove the find.
