Discover the remarkable story of one of the world’s first underwater archaeologists, Honor Frost (1917‒2010). From an experimental dive in a London garden well to excavating shipwrecks across the Mediterranean, Frost devoted herself to underwater archaeology with a passion, declaring “Any time spent on the surface was a waste of time.”
