Product description

In ten papers Odyssey Marine Exploration presents the technology, methodology and archaeological results from four deep-sea shipwrecks and one major survey conducted between 2003 and 2008. The sites lie beyond territorial waters in depths of up to 820 metres off southeastern America and in the Straits of Gibraltar and the English Channel. Exclusively recorded using robotic technology in the form of a Remotely-Operated Vehicle, the wrecks range from the major Royal Navy warships HMS Sussex (1694) and the unique, 100-gun, first-rate HMS Victory (1744)to the steamship SS Republic (1865) and a mid-19th century merchant vessel with a cargo of British porcelain. Their study reveals that the future of deep-sea wreck research has arrived, but also that many sites are at severe risk from destruction from the offshore fishing industry.

Review quote

For the academic, researcher, historian, shipwreck buff, diver and ocean enthusiast Odyssey Marines two-volume set is indispensible. While the papers are scientific they are easy to read and fascinating. The photographs are amazing in fidelity and content. The information contained in the volumes would require years of research to find in scattered archives. The discoveries themselves are news of the century.'--John Christopher Fine"The Epoch Times" (01/01/0001)
