Artefacts recovered from the wreck of the Titanic are set to be sold for 189 million dollars by Premier Exhibitions Incorporation.

The wreck, discovered by explorer Robert Ballard in 1985, has yielded more than 5,500 artefacts for Premier, which has made eight expeditions to the ship since 1987.

The exhibition items range from delicate porcelain dishes and silver cutlery to a 17-ton section of the hull, complete with portholes, pulled from the Atlantic

sea-bed where the Titanic hit an iceberg and sank 100 years ago, with the loss of more than 1,500 lives.
