The Crimea has been a gathering point for centuries, and among those who have gathered in the region include Italian merchants, pirates, and in recent years, holiday makers from Russia. The Black Sea also serves as the last resting place for a number of ships, some of which were the victims of various sea battles. One such ship sunk in 1277 as a result of just such a military action, and most recently was the subject of an extensive underwater archaeology study by a team of researchers from Brown University, Colby College, and the University of Kiev. Visitors interested in this work will most definitely enjoy this latest Interactive Dig feature offered by Archaeology Magazine, as it features reports from the underwater exploration which took place in the summer of 2006. The site also includes a selection of photos, an interview with one of the primary investigators, and an "Ask the Archaeologist" forum.
