Underwater Cultural Heritage


Shipwrecks are like time capsules, preserving a single moment in time. By studying these sites, archaeologists can begin to understand the past. The study of wrecks can also connect us to cultural heritage, and teach us lessons on how the environment and human development can impact each other. Over the years, NOAA OER has supported many expeditions to explore deep water shipwrecks. This is a collection of some of the best shipwreck images from these expeditions.
