THE Project Beneath Gallipoli scientific expedition, which surveyed First World War wrecks and war relics off Anzac Cove, has featured in this month’s edition of the Australian Geographic Magazine.
A comprehensive article detailing the discoveries of archaeologists is complemented by the images of acclaimed Coffs Harbour underwater photographer Mark Spencer.
Since returning home, the expedition has been able to establish the history of a previously unknown hospital barge found decaying on the ocean floor.
It’s believed Anzac troops scuttled the vessel during the retreat of Gallipoli, 95 years ago.
Mr Spencer will be on hand at the Palms Centre Newsagency on Monday to discuss the expedition and the extraordinary images he captured.
He will field questions from the public between 10am and 1.30pm.
