Shipwrecks and Submerged Worlds
Wed 12 April 2017, 19:15 – 20:15 BST
Technical Lecture of the Devon & Cornwall Joint Branch presented by Dr Helen Farr, University of Southampton.
No longer the exclusive realm of deep water explorers, treasure hunters or salvers, innovative developments in technology now enable academic researchers to explore the ocean depths to undertake first class maritime archaeological research within codes of best-practice. Remote operated vehicles, 3D geophysics and graphical reconstructions are just some of the tools that are being used and developed to survey and access the ocean depths in order to learn more about the past.
With examples from recent field survey and some amazing finds, Dr Helen Farr will give you a glimpse into the depths of the Black Sea.
