The Vernian Era

S   ome years ago I saw a television documentary about Mayan archaeology.  I found it interesting that many of the people working on this project were not archaeologists but volunteers from all walks of life.  I was amazed that someone like me might share in this kind of time travel.  A few years later, thanks to Earthwatch Institute, I found myself on the beautiful west coast of Scotland, excavating some standing stones with a team of volunteers and archaeologists.  Since then I've participated in archaeology around the world, in 1997 coming full circle with the documentary  when I joined a team excavating a Post-Classic Maya site in northern Belize.

Click for my Hunley archaeological interpretation

The Hunley was did not return from its successful, but tragic mission in 1864, and was lost for 136 years.  This Confederate submarine was recovered for the ocean bottom outside Charleston harbor in August 2000 and has been undergoing careful study and conservation processing since then.  Excavation of the silt-filled hull began in January 2001. See a reconstruction and learn more about the Hunley archaeology project here.
