Abstract: The Great Museum of the Sea

The oceans, lakes and rivers of the world are the greatest museum of humanity’s interaction with the sea – as well as our global expansion and a record of our interactions with each other through immigration, exploration, commerce and war.  This lecture explores some of history’s most famous and significant shipwrecks from antiquity through the modern age  – ranging from the Ulu Burun shipwreck of 1300 BC to more modern wrecks like the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor, the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor, or RMS Titanic. 

Dr. Brudget Buxton will be filling in for Dr. James Delgado for this lecture.
