The Black Sea is a treasure trove of sunken ships and marine archaeologists have barely scratched the surface of what is hidden. Ghost Ships of the Black Sea: Revealed follows Ballard as he returns to a miraculously well-preserved Byzantine shipwreck with state-of-the-art technology and a revolutionary $1.5 million robot known as "Hercules." His plan is to excavate two shipwrecks for the first time ever, including one of the most pristine ancient vessels ever found.
