I had the privilege of attending the Titanic Exhibit in Atlanta GA. last year. I was very impressed. It is one thing to read a book or watch the movie, and another to view the actual artifacts and belongings up close and personal. It was quite stirring. The chinaware, perfume samples from a salesman, a gentleman's top hat, and a pair of spectacles and shoes, etc. Sections of the ship, both real and many that have been re-created.

I would encourage anyone who can, to go see this exhibit, here is a link that should provide dates and locations:

For a different kind of shipwreck adventure, check out the book "Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea" by Gary Kinder, a kind of shipwreck story, character study and deep salvage thriller all rolled into one, and one of the best science journalism books I have ever read, period.

Thanks for the book recommendation, BigRed. I'll add it to my ever-growing list.

"Shadow Divers" is another excellent treasure-hunting tale in a similar vein.

Speaking of oceans, I always urge folks to check out "The Custom of the Sea," which chronicles how men historically survived when stranded at sea. Informative, though not especially appetizing.
