Underwater Archaeology

Underwater archaeologist Dr Brian Atkin

Storm Pia was doing its worst, but gales and torrential rain failed to deter the nearly 30 members of Wirral Archaeology, who turned out on Thursday, (21st December 2023), to enjoy a fascinating talk by Dr Brian Atkin (left) on Underwater Archaeology.   Brian has dived on shipwrecks all over the world, but for his talk, he picked just five.   These were The Giglio Wreck, the Dattilo wreck ( the wreck in the volcano), the Cannon pile at Gibraltar, the Admiral Graf Spee, the HMS Agamemnon and a shipwreck at Alderney.
