Shipwrecks Throughout History: From Tut to the Atomic Age

May 10, 2007

How is archeology conducted under the sea? Despite the allure of sunken treasure, there is real historical perspective to be gained by studying shipwrecks in a scientific manner. We’ll discuss the field of Nautical Archeology with two experts this hour. Dr George Bass is the founder of the Institute of Nautical Archeology at Texas AandM and a pioneer of the field. Dr. James Delgado is Executive Director of the Institute and host of National Geographic’s television program “The Sea Hunters.” They’ll both participate in a free symposium, “Shipwrecks Throughout History: From Tut to the Atomic Age,” this Saturday at the Dallas Museum of Art.
