Robert Marx, famous Wreck Diver and Treasure Hunter will be the California Wreck Divers' Guest Speaker at our 46th Annual Banquet on board the museum ship, SS Lane Victory in San Pedro (Los Angeles) on March 4.

Robert Marx, in his culmination of more than 60 years of original research in every major archive and library around the world, has amassed files comprising data on more than 28,500 shipwrecks dating from the Greeks to modern times, including shipwrecks whose cargoes contained over $10 million worth of treasures. As an underwater archaeologist and salvor, he has discovered and excavated ancient shipwrecks in over 60 sites worldwide. He has written more than 50 books, several hundred scientific reports and popular articles, and produced or filmed over 50 documentary films providing expert advice on locating, surveying, excavating, identifying and preserving artifacts from sunken vessels.

Marx will share some of his tales of treasure hunting adventures in his presentation, "Underwater Archaeology Around the World," on board the museum ship, SS Lane Victory, in San Pedro. See www.cawreckdivers.org/banquet.htm or contact Steve Lawson at 949 433-8030 for more information.
