Preserving the Submerged Past: The IMH in 2009September 11, 2009
The Institute of Maritime History (IMH) just posted an update on the MUA about all the projects they are working on in 2009. It has been a busy year for this group of avocational and professional underwater archaeologists. Check out their post on projects from Florida to Massachusetts to see an excellent model of how the public and professionals can work together to preserve shipwrecks and other submerged sites. It’s a great alternative to the tired conflict between archaeologists and treasure hunters.
