Wreck Diving Magazine

From the Debris Fueld…

Wreck enthusiasts are invited to submit short pieces of information about a shipwreck currently in the news in their general area. Perhaps there is not enough information, or not enough archival and/or underwater images, to submit it as a full-length article, so this From the Debris Field… column becomes the ideal venue for a short piece. This, however, does not preclude it from becoming a full-length article in the future.

We welcome short, written submissions, ideally, but not necessarily, accompanied by a photo or two, for future issues of Wreck Diving Magazine. Please send them to joe@wreckdivingmag.com

While no one died during this sinking two thousand years ago, eyewitness accounts of this shipwreck’s location were not, unsurprisingly, handed down from generation to generation.
