John Schlagheck, a recently-certified scientific scuba diver with an interest in underwater archaeology shared his insights into this provocative yet esoteric sub-field of archaeology. John discussed the history of the field, training and education options, and details of recent dives on the wreck of the HMS Solebay, an 18th century British warship sunk in 1782 off the coast of Nevis, West Indies. A 2009 graduate of the Cabrillo College Archaeological Technology Program, John also holds a B.A. in Geography from Western Michigan University, and a M.A. in Applied Anthropology from San Jose State University.
