As a grad student with plans on procuring degrees in archaeology and nautical archaeology, I was very interested to hear the 2 nautical archaeologists on the Cameron expedition (on Discovery) say that the footage of the areas fillmed inside Titanic, and of contents therof may be assembled into an archaeological database.
Such a datasbase would be invaluable reference guide for any future endeavors to explore Titanic's interior
.
Funny, in my communications with some people in the nautical archaeology community, some would react with skepticism to my belief that Titanic should be explored and documented in an archeological manner- there does seem to be a curious prejudice against ships from the age of steam in the nautical archcaeology community...
I am hoping that the nautical archaeology comnmunity will embrace Titanic, and I will not be one of the few in the field whose main focus will be Titanic...
Titanic will be the focus of my studies, period.
I eagerly await the creation of this database, and do hope future expeditions can continue to add to the database, and document the changes seen within Titanic over the coming years.
