The world marked the one centesimal anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic this weekend. Yesterday, 3 newly released photos terribly doubtless showed human remains buried within the mud of the Atlantic where the majestic ship came to rest once hitting an iceberg and sinking.
While there's some controversy concerning the photos, consultants believe they are doing show where people that were aboard the doomed ship were laid to rest in their watery graves. Titanic director James Cameron insists that he never saw human remains on his over thirty visits to tour the wreckage. However, the director of maritime heritage at the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration James Delgado believes that the photos do show Titanic human remains.
Delgado said, "I as an archaeologist would say those are human remains. Buried in that sediment are terribly doubtless forensic remains of that person.'' If nothing else, the newly released photos show a wierd and compelling read of 1 of the world's most famous doomed voyages.
The photos, captured in 2004, were snapped by the founding father of the Titanic shipwreck Robert Ballard. does one believe they're photos of human remains from the shipwreck that killed 1517 people? Did you are doing something this weekend to mark the voyage's one centesimal anniversary?
