Using prototype technology, archaeologists and Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) pilots team up to investigate three of the newest and deepest shipwreck discoveries in the Great Lakes. See footage from the converted car ferry Harriet B. in 650 feet of water off Two Harbors, Minnesota - the deepest archaeological survey of a shipwreck on the Great Lakes - the schooner Antelope located in 310 feet of water off Michigan Island, Wisconsin, and dive deep inside the car-filled hold of the steamer Senator in 450 feet of water off Port Washington, Wisconsin.
