In August 2010, a coalition of government and private partners conducted a comprehensive scientific mapping of the entire Titanic wreck site — every scattered artifact and section of hull that rests on the seabed more than 4,000 m beneath the surface of the North Atlantic. The result: a massive high-definition picture in which every thing has been precisely gridded and geo-referenced. Dr. Delgado was the chief scientist and principal archaeologist on the expedition. He’ll share his intimate knowledge of the ship, research and technology. Just as important, he’ll discuss the critical question: Is Titanic archaeology?
After nearly four decades in underwater exploration, Dr. Delgado is a veteran of more than 100 shipwreck investigations. He was President and CEO of the Institute of Nautical Archaeology at Texas A&M University from 2006-2010; host and team archaeologist on the popular National Geographic documentary series The Sea Hunters from 2001-2006; and Executive Director of the Vancouver Maritime Museum from 1991-2006. He is a Fellow of The Explorers Club and the Royal Geographic Society.
This event has been organized by The Explorers Club and the UofT Archaeology Centre.
