Archaeological Discovery Ventures,
Archaeological Discovery Ventures, LLC is a private, Florida-based archaeological research, location, excavation, salvage and historical preservation firm. We have been in continuous operation since 1989 and are considered one of the most successful treasure salvage operations in the country.
Credited with finding the Oldest Wreck in the Western Hemisphere and others, we continue to endeavor to locate and recover archaeologically important projects around the globe. Unlike most treasure salvage operations, we do not take on direct investors in treasure projects and thus, we have no pressure to disburse artifacts en masse when they are uncovered. Instead, we prefer to keep collections intact and recoup our investments from exhibition rather than sale. We aim to change the perception of the industry from one of pillage and plunder to one of conservation and exhibition.
We have never sold relics or artifacts from any of our recoveries.
Our ultimate goal is to present the treasure, in its entirety, as an archaeological exhibit to be shared with and enjoyed by the public and the archaeological, historical, and scientific communities.
Should you have an interest in learning more about partnering with us on current or upcoming projects, please feel free to contact us at your convenience.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
