On this page we welcome our international guests and include some information about their experience in Underwater Archaeology.


  Donald G Shomette is featured elsewhere on this site, however as the principle architect of this latest initiative, he has worked closely with FURU over the past few years and provided valuable information on the work that has been completed by FURU.  As an underwater archaeologist he has been involved in many ground breaking projects and as well as a prolific lecturer, he is an accomplished author who has written his own books on maritime archaeological subjects and for prestigious publications.

 Some of his achievements are:

The first underwater survey of an entire riverine system in America    
The first systematic use of robotic technology for underwater archaeology     
The survey of the largest fleet of shipwrecks in one place     

The survey of the oldest shipwreck fleet in America discovery of the earliest Euro-American small craft wreck in the U.S. and co-founder of the first public historic shipwreck preserve in Maryland.
