What if we told you that most of the rocks you’ve seen underwater in your life could have been precious objects?
Underwater archaeological exploration is a life-changing experience. The findings can change your life, enrich a nation’s cultural heritage, or even contribute to environmental preservation.
However, you need the best equipment to enhance the safeness and fun of your underwater expeditions.
There is plenty to search for in the ocean. If you are an archaeologist or a hobbyist metal detectorist.
One of the most infamous shipwrecks in history was the Titanic. And the list has been growing since 1912:
- If you are living or just passing by Florida, Cape Canaveral is one of the hotspots for archaeological research and trying your OTS scuba diving equipment! This area contains one of the world’s highest concentrations of colonial shipwrecks, and a big part has never been found. In the ’60s, Spanish silver treasure coins from the 1715 Spanish Treasure Fleet were discovered in Ft. Pierce. Moreover, Señora de Atocha was declared by the Guinness World Record as the most valuable shipwreck in the world in 2014.
- Shipwrecks are a worldwide issue. In China, underwater excavations unearthed Chinese ceramics such as Longquan green-ware dishes and porcelain bowls.
- In 2015, Colombia’s ex-President, Juan Manual Santos, announced the discovery of the San Jose bounty from the eighteenth century, which “constitutes one of the greatest findings and identification of underwater heritage in the history of humanity”, as reported by Forbes.
All that glitters is not gold
