Archaeological Discovery Ventures

Archaeological Discovery Ventures, LLC is involved in the research, location, recovery, and preservation of shipwreck treasure, artifacts, and other historical items. We presently have projects both in the ocean, in the mountains, and in the desert - both involve extreme conditions and require exceptional equipment.
