Marine Archeology is important...
Archaeology is the closest thing we have to a time machine. It is the only way we can know the unrecorded, and sometimes even the recorded, past.
"The goal of Archaeological Research is the preservation of cultural resources for the benefit of ourselves and coming generations. All of us who spend time under water know that it is a fragile and changing environment. We share not only a fascination for the underwater world, but also common concerns and responsibilities for its welfare in the future. As we learn more about its hidden secrets, we begin to understand how easily they can be lost forever." You can find more information on flheritage.com.
