Immersion: Marine Archaeology Lessons Learned

Reflecting, Sharing, Learning

Wednesday, June 22, 7:00 p.m.
Appleton Auditorium

For millennia, some ships spent the final part of their last voyage traveling vertically. Their remains and cargo are a storehouse of history which give us insight into ancient times, including shipbuilding techniques and the life of a common sailor. Harbors and other features have slowly subsided underwater as land fell or water rose. Rugged coastlines and beaches have captured wayward whalers, trading vessels and large steamers. All have a story to tell. Dr. John Campbell is an amateur marine archaeologist who has examined underwater wrecks and other features in France, Italy, Cyprus, Turkey and New Zealand. The event is sponsored by Reflecting, Sharing, Learning and is free and open to the public.For more information, visit or call (706) 613-3650, ext. 343.
