Dr. Robert Ballard is the Indiana Jones of the Alien Deep. He's on the hunt for the world's oldest shipwrecks in the Mediterranean Sea. Using tactics and technology developed over a 50-year career at sea, he is on a quest to uncover the lost history of the Ancient world. Who were these earliest of mariners and how did they live and die? How did the ocean and maritime culture help build those civilizations? The journey will take him deep in the chilly depths of the Mediterranean, to Hawaii, and home to the continental U.S. He will find not just ancient wrecks but modern ones too, proving his assertion that the Alien Deep holds more treasure and history than all the world's museums combined.
