A discussion with good friend and collaborator, Dr. Brendan Foley, archaeologist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. We talk about one of the most interesting archaeology excavations ever, the Antikythera shipwreck. Brendan and team announced just this week, that ancient skeletons, over 2000 years old, have been located at the site deep underwater in the Aegean Sea. This is a very rare find. We also discuss the use of reality capture technology to share the the artifacts and tell the story of the doomed Greek ship which sank over 2000 years ago.

I speak with Brendan via Skype. He lives in Sweden and I am in Monterey Bay, California participating in the Marine Technology Society / IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society Oceans '16 conference.
