Documenting Sunken Ship Sites

@ VOL 7 ON MAY 14, 2015

Kelly Keogh, PHD, an underwater archaeologist for NOAA in Honolulu, HI, describes how artifacts become historical record which in turn can create connection with our stories and civilization as a whole. One shipwreck discovery, the Two Brothers, is signifcant because it tells more of the story that inspired the novel, Moby Dick. She indeed shows us how all of these discoveries coming from a remote reef in the northwest Hawaiian islands do have significance to us all.
