I must apologize to my faithful readers for not having a new post in over a week. I have spent the past ten days visiting the wonderful seas and straits surrounding one of the world's most historic waterways through the country of Turkey. I had planned on reporting my adventures LIVE on this weblog but unfortunately - due to technical, logistical and security reasons - I was unable to access this web log. Despite this setback, I will be giving you the details on a truly wonderful trip back through human civilization via Turkey's waterway.
The mission of this trip was to explore the rich historical shipwreck history of the vessels that plied the waterways from the Black Sea to the Aegean Sea. The goal would be to select potential underwater projects to partner with government, conservatory and academic communities in pursuit of their nautical archaeology endeavors. Although I am a biological scientist, my background has been utilized in many archaeological finds to better explore and investigate the historical nature of shipwrecks. Over the course of this new and exclusive weblog series on Underwater Turkey, we will be reporting on shipwrecks that ranged in time from the legendary Noah's Flood through to the ANZAC battle for control of the Dardanelles. This is a very special series that I know you will enjoy!
