It's quite a shipwreck tale: There were no storm warnings when one of the 18th-century ships in the fleet of the Dutch East India company left Agra, India — home of the Taj Mahal — and headed for the Orient. The captain and crew had survived monsoons, but they were no match for a typhoon that swept them on to the rocks of the Indian Ocean’s Great Basses Reef off the southern coast of Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). Few records were recovered relating to the loss of life or the thousands of silver rupees that were part of the merchant ship’s cargo.
