(AP)  LONDON undefined A Florida-based deep-sea salvage company will help explore the wreck of a renowned 18th century British warship it discovered at the bottom of the English Channel four years ago, a charity said Monday.

The newly established Maritime Heritage Foundation said Odyssey Marine Exploration Inc. plans to scan the wreck of the HMS Victory with a robotic submersible to try and find out why the ship sank beneath the waves and whether it carried any treasure.
