What a job!

diorama of underwater archeological excavation Ever wonder what an underwater archeological dig looks like? This diorama at the Museum of the Filipino People gives us a glimpse. The excavation site is in shallow waters near the shore, however, so barrel rafts rather than a ship could be used.

That would be a super risky but extremely exciting job, I imagine!

I love looking at dioramas and this is fascinating! I've always marveled at underwater archeology.

It is beyond my depth! If I were to do it again, I might become an archaeologist but not an underwater one!

I'll bet there are lots of sunken ships and other things in Philippine waters.

Interesting! What kind of artifacts are they excavating?

That's one way to stay out of the sun.
