New podcast: Archaeocast 12 - Exploring the wreck of the paddle steamer Iona

Archaeocast logoIn March 2009, at the request of Historic Scotland, Wessex Archaeology’s dive team investigated the wreck of the Iona I, a paddle steamer lost in 1862 in the Inner Clyde Estuary near Greenock, Scotland.

As part of our ongoing series of podcasts, this edition of Archaeocast was recorded at sea by our coastal and marine archaeologists during exploration of the Iona. You will hear about the story of the steamer, how it was involved with the American Civil War, and hear from divers exploring the Iona's remains on the seabed.

Listen to Archaeocast 12 online, or subscribe to Archaeocast with iTunes (this link opens iTunes if you have it installed) to download the latest editions automatically.
