A publication of the Archaeological Institute of America
Adventurer, explorer, and maritime archaeologist Jim Delgado sits down for a chat with ARCHAEOLOGY's contributing editor, Heather Pringle, in a quiet bar in the old cannery town of Steveston, British Columbia. Delgado, the president of the world-famous Institute of Nautical Archaeology in Texas, entertains with tales of his underwater explorations of Khubilai Khan's lost invasion fleet off the coast of Japan, and his discoveries of the lost gold rush port of San Francisco. A passionate and eloquent advocate of underwater archaeology, Delgado reminds us why we should care about the wrecks that lie along the seabed and what we gain by protecting them from treasure hunters. If you've ever wondered what makes a maritime archaeologist tick, pull up a chair and join us.
