Institute of Nautical Archaeology's Virtual Museum

The Institute of Nautical Archaeology is a branch of Texas A&M University. The institute is dedicated to the study of humanity's past that has submerged into changing coast lines, rivers, and other bodies of water.

The institutes' website has a virtual museum that documents many of the missions and finds the organization has taken part in. Sites from the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Indian Ocean, and more are featured. This is a interesting site for anyone who wants to read about sunken ships, lost cities, and ancient trade goods on the sea floor.
