<font color='#0000FF'>when diving on wrecks that are protected a condition sometimes placed on recieving permission to dive is an archaeologist must be in attendance on the support boat.
one of the conditions attached to diving the luisatania is 2 full time archaeologists must be present at all dives.££££££.
you also have to give a full list of divers 6 months before diving is started.
no shots can be placed into the wreck.
a patterned bed pot was recently returned to the owner of the luisatania after a court case between gregg bemis the owner of the wreck and the irish gov.
he produced the pot from a box and although taken into care by the archaeologists intact it was returned in 3 pieces.
cheers
