Long-time treasure hunter Margaret Weller, aka “Lady Goldiver,” has been salvaging Spanish galleons off the coast of Florida since the 1970s. Along with her now deceased husband, the legendary treasure seeker Bob “Frogfoot” Weller, who himself began salvaging Spanish galleons in the Florida Keys in 1960 when the 1733 Spanish fleet was first being located, has recovered enough gold, silver, jewelry and artifacts to fill a museum.

In this fascinating program, Margaret shares her amazing experience working as a treasure seeker, shows off some of the artifacts she recovered, and shares a few of her many interesting and funny stories relating to her career salvaging sunken treasure.  An informal walk-thru of the Museum’s exhibit Treasure! with the presenter, follows the talk.
