Lost Ships of Rome

Secrets of the Dead: Lost Ships of Rome was a documentary previously shown on PBS. If your area is the Classics or you enjoy marine archaeology, take some time to watch this fascinating show.

Show Highlights:

In 2009 a team of marine archeologists carrying out a sonar survey of the seabed around the remote Italian island of Ventotene made an astonishing discovery. The wrecks of five ancient Roman ships were found in pristine condition, each one fully laden with exotic goods. Remarkably, much of the cargo remained exactly as the ancient Roman crews had loaded it.
