Hi Guys, I am wondering if anyone can point me to a resource where I can look up the treasure finder laws of different countries? Like if a shipwreck is supposed to be off the shore of a particular country where can you look up what the country's law is about salvagers. I read that someone found treasure belonging to Spain and they just seized the whole thing without a finder's fee. I'd like to look up a directory of countries and their treasure laws.

Also if you are interested in reading about past attempts to find a certain wreck where can you find the history of previous attempts to discover it? Is there a log or index somewhere documenting all the attempts, who made them and when, etc.?

I am sorry if this information is already in the resource section. I am going through it link by link but it is a very rich list of resources (a good thing) and will take me a while.
