The Titanic sank on April 14, 1912, but it became a legend soon after when 13 shocking items where picked up from the Titanic's wreckage which appears like the ones of the ship were alive again.
Found on the sea floor are the last vestiges of those who died that night when Titanic sunk. These were taken to the surface and examined by explorers.
These items are remembrances of those who were once living- a chilling reminder about life in the first 20 years of the 20th century when a generation was moving forward. Here are the haunting items from those claimed by the sea.
1. A pair of white gloves found in the wreckage.
White gloves that were worn by one of the passengers were found. It was part of many exhibitions but it was last seen in 2016 since it was sent for conservation permanently.
2. A violin.
When the ship sank, the sound of a violin as the last music heard by the doomed passengers. The violin owned by the bandleader Wallace Hartley which he used to play "Nearer, My God, to Thee" as the ship sank was sold in an auction for $1.7 million in the UK in 2013.
3. The ship's bell.
When the iceberg struck, the bell rung to warn the passengers. This was found and remains as a grim reminder of what happened in the ocean. The expedition was able to retrieve the bell from the crow's nest and is part of the display at the Titanic Museum in Massachusetts. This was the first and last warning before the ship's hull was torn apart.
