For millennia, some ships spent the final part of their last voyage by traveling vertically. Their remains and cargo are a storehouse of history which give an insight into life in ancient times, including shipbuilding techniques and the life of a common sailor. Harbors and other features have slowly subsided underwater as land fell or water rose. Rugged coastlines and beaches have captured wayward whalers, trading vessels and large steamers. All have a story to tell.

Dr John Campbell is an amateur marine archaeologist who has examined underwater wrecks and other sunken features in France, Italy, Cyprus, Turkey, and New Zealand. The lessons learned from this field have been great lessons for life.

He is a retired physicist from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, the author of Historic Shipwrecks of the Chatham Islands, Rutherford Scientist Supreme, www.rutherford.org.nz, and the producer of the three-episode documentary Rutherford, the story of Ernest Rutherford, New Zealand’s preeminent nuclear scientist. Dr Campbell initiated and runs the Ask-A-Scientist program in New Zealand, and holds several awards for communicating science to the general public. One technique involves the art and science of fire walking, which he has staged four times at UGA where he is a frequent visitor.
