Watch: Amelia Island's Maritime Heritage

Amelia Island, off Florida's northeast coast, is the subject of a new documentary film depicting its history of pirate treasure hunting and lost galleons.

The island was named for Princess Amelia, daughter of George II of Great Britain, and is claimed to be the only place in America that has undergone eight changes of sovereignty: French, Spanish, British, Floridian/Patriot, Green Cross, Mexican, Confederate and United States. 

The documentary was produced by the treasure-hunting organization Amelia Research & Recovery.
