More than two and a half miles below the ocean's surface, the wreckage of the Titanic rests on the seafloor. The legend of the Titanic was larger than her size, and finding the wreck site opened a door to not only exploration and scientific study, but to salvage as well. The United States negotiated an international agreement with representatives of the United Kingdom, Canada, and France. This agreement recognizes the wreck site as a memorial to those who died and a wreck of great archaeological, historical, and cultural importance.
