Underwater archaeology: Hunt for the ancient mariner

January 25, 2012 via - Nature

Armed with high-tech methods, researchers are scouring the Aegean Sea for the world's oldest shipwrecks.

Foley and a few competitors are using high-tech approaches such as autonomous robots and new search strategies that they say have a good chance of locating the most ancient of shipwrecks. If they succeed, they could transform archaeologists' understanding of a crucial period in human history, when ancient mariners first ventured long distances across the sea.
