The news of the loss of the ship was reported in Lloyd's "Loss and Casualty Book". The entry for Thursday, 31st January 1839 reads: “Beatrice, Wichelo, [the skipper of the vessel], sailed from Alexandria 20th Sept. & from Malta, 13th October for Liverpool, & has not since been heard of”.
The Pharaoh Menkaure was the sixth ruler of the fourth dynasty. He created the third largest pyramid on the Giza Plato. His sarcophagus was elaborately decorated and created out of polished blue basalt. It lay hidden in the pyramid till 1837 when British explorer Colonel Richard William Howard Vyse discovered the Sarcophagus.

This is a very ambitious project. Brad travelled to Egypt gathering information and following up on rumors. His travels took him throughout Egypt, from the Pyramids in Giza to the Temple at Karnack and from Edfu to the Valley of the Kings, etc.
The next phase in this ambitious project is recovering the sarcophagus and the other valuable treasures from the ocean floor. This is a long running expedition and is still underway and ongoing.
