When it comes to shipwrecks, the archaeological past tells us about the present and where we can go in the future. How can a shipwreck be used to study a hurricane? How can an 1879 wreck at the Arctic Circle help explain climate change? Join Vic Mastone, Director and Chief Archaeologist of the Massachusetts Board of Underwater Archaeological Resources, as he discusses the effect of climate change on shipwrecks and how relics can be used to better understand global warming. Reception to follow.
