In Search of Lost Ships

In Search of Lost Shps

Something about the idea of finding lost and buried treasure sends people's eyes a-sparklin' and dreams a-dancin'. Dr. James Delgado, President and CEO of the Institute of Nautical Archaeology (INA), presents a talk covering some of the world's oldest and most significant shipwrecks, ranging from a wreck dating back to the age of King Tutankhamen to Byzantine ships sunk off Istanbul, Turkey. Drawing on INA's amazing discoveries, as well as his own work on wrecks ranging from the Titanic to Khubilai Khan's fleet sunk off of Japan in 1281 by the legendary kamikaze, Delgado discusses these lost ships and the incredible stories archaeologists have learned by studying them.
