I'm elated to see a significant artifact from the Andrea Doria site! Being a survivor (and author of the event), it brings me a sense of satisfaction knowing that all is not lost from the disaster.
Odd how items that were once precious for their function, are now priceless art just for their pure existence. That is the beauty of marine archealogy: an journey back in history which creates depths of appreciation for its travels through time.
Thank you for the beautiful article and video!
