An astounding array of artifacts from the Titanic are set to be sold soon and a filmmaker synonymous with the doomed vessel hopes that he can help save the treasure.
The company that owns the cache of relics declared bankruptcy last week and announced that they are going to sell a jaw-dropping 5,500 items recovered from the wreckage.
In response to this development, director James Cameron has joined in an effort alongside Dr. Robert Ballard, who originally discovered the wreckage, to prevent the pieces from falling into the hands of private collectors.
The pair are working with the UK's National Maritime Museum as well as England's Royal Geographical Society to ostensibly outbid any other prospective buyers who might be interested purchasing the collection which is valued at over $200 million dollars.
