|What is Underwater
archaeology deals with discovering the past with
the help of maritime finds. Many thousands of
ships have perished around the coaslines
worldwide, many ports that used to be on land
years ago are now underwater, there are many
historical cities which used to exist on land one
time but are under the sea now. Underwater
archaeology explores these shipwrecks, dwellings,
port, and other objects to learn about past and
find the links between various historical events.
