Mary Celeste - Dec 1872

In December 1872, the merchant ship The Mary Celeste was found drifting deserted in the mid Atlantic Ocean. She was a ghost ship with no sign of her captain or the eight crew aboard, but mysteriously, her cargo of 1700 barrels of pure alcohol was intact in her hull. The mystery of her plight has stood for 135 years, baffling scientists, historians and mariners.

Captain Benjamin Briggs, his wife and daughter, and six crewmembers were all gone - vanished into the most mysterious of maritime tales. What happened to Mary Celeste after this unsolved and baffling enigma?Now a descendant of the ship's captain has a look at evidence that throws some fascinating new light on what really happened
