Are you interested in ships and seafaring, history, early man, and archaeology? Covering nearly 3/4 of the Earth’s surface, water is the source of all life on our planet. Beneath the surface of our oceans, lakes, rivers, and wetlands lies a physical record of humankind preserved in prehistoric and historic shorelines, shipwrecks, inundated cities, harbors, and other traces of our past.
