Event description

Description

Join David Mearns once again for the launch of his new book The Shipwreck Hunter. David Mearns has found some of the world's most fascinating and elusive shipwrecks, from the dee-water searches that led to him solving the 66-year mystery of HMAS Sydney, and the final resting place of the mighty battlecruiser HMS Hood, to the shallow reefs of a remote island that revealed the crumbling wooden skeletons of Vasco de Gama's 16th century fleet.

The Shipwreck Hunter is the compelling story of some of David's most intriguing discoveries. It details the extraordinary technicques used, the painstaking research and the mid-ocean stamina and courage needed to find a wreck kilometres beneath the sea, as well as the moving human stories that lie behind each of these oceanic tragedies.

Part detective story, part history and part deep ocean adventure, The Shipwreck Hunter is unique insight into a hidden, underwater world.
