All those interested in this subject should read "The Terror" by Dan Simmons. While it is a novel, there is much historical accuracy in it, plus tis a ripping good yarn.

An absolutely wonderful discovery! Every effort must be made to preserve the site; its historical value is way beyond calculation.

Wow!!!! That really is amazing!!! I cant wait until they publish some photographs of the wreckage when they get the RC units down there to explore it. I suppose with the waters being so cold it probably did help to preserve it much better that it might have in other locations, but it will likely make it harder to explore. At least the water around it is relatively shallow. You know there are probably tons of archaeologists wanting to dive down there and explore!!
