Publications

The many steps essential for conducting high-level marine archaeology in the deep ocean require a diversity of skills and expertise and are often time-consuming processes. As a rule of thumb, for every month spent investigating a shipwreck at least one year, and sometimes longer, is needed to conserve, document, research and interpret the finds. To protect both shipwreck sites and commercial interests, in line with many government bodies working in cultural resource management, scientific results will generally not be available for publication until after a project is completed.

 

Odyssey is committed to sharing its discoveries with the widest spectrum of society through popular articles and books, television programs, traveling exhibitions and scientific reports and papers. A variety of reports and publications are now available to the public and some are accessible through this website. "Odyssey Papers" are listed at the bottom of this page.

Articles published in various popular or specialty magazines and journals are available in the "Features" section of this site.
