Divers and archaeologists try to recover objects from the Lusitania

A team of divers and archaeologists will try today to recover a series of objects from the remains of the Lusitania, the ship sunk by a German submarine in 1915, where 1,200 lives were lost.

Two ships, divers and two archaeologists are involved in the operation, where it is expected to be able to recover the telemotor and a series of telegraphs, whose needles would indicate what state the engine was in when the ship was sunk.

Gregg Bemis, the American billionaire who has owned the ship since 1968, has already spent at least 5 million euros, trying to find out if the passenger ship was carrying ammunition.

Last month, a team led by him cut through the hull of the ship in an attempt to discover what caused the second explosion of the passenger ship that is currently 100 meters under the sea.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
