Al of these sites, in the Mediterranean, in UK waters and in Canada, feed my fictional imagination, and my own underwater exploration will continue to be a vital backdrop to my novels into the future. You can also follow my explorations and discoveries on my Facebook page and at Cornwall Maritime Archaeology.
