|A blog about Why We Explore
This a few months ago ( Spring 2014) we were visited by a BBC film crew with presenter Dr Lucy Blue, who wanted to get a closer look at the work of Underwater Archaeologist Franck Goddio on the sunken Egyptian city of Heracleion. As part of the team, I'm always excited when we get a chance to share our discoveries with the public. "Swallowed by the Sea: Ancient Egypt's Greatest Lost City" a BBC Documentary 2014just aired and is now available on youtube.
My Name is Eric and My Job is Scientific Exploration.
That means I'm lucky enough to join expeditions to excavate sunken cities, climb volcanoes, find missing bombs, and Sail old research vessels, while searching for the mysteries of the natural world.
