One event on July 23, 2023 at 2:00 pm
Historian Kristi Hawthorne will present Histories and Mysteries: Legends of Sunken Treasure, a 1-hour program exploring the claims of Dr. Joseph J. Markey for two shows: Friday, July 21 at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, July 23 at 2:00 pm at OTC’s Studio 219, 219 N. Coast Highway, downtown Oceanside.
For over 30 years Dr. Joseph J. Markey spoke of Spanish gold buried in the hills of the San Luis Rey Valley for which only he had the map. Later Markey would claim that the Ship Trinidad carrying $10 million of gold sunk off the coast of Oceanside. He “discovered” numerous artifacts, including coins, skeletons and burials sites — but what became of these discoveries? Is there gold waiting to be found? People want to believe, but what is the truth? Was it a hoax?
