    Roger C. Smith has crossed the bar

    Dr. Roger C. Smith served for three decades as Florida's State Underwater Archaeologist.

    He received his doctorate at Texas A&M University and taught several undergraduate and graduate courses at Florida State University and the University of West Florida.

    Smith directed a number of surveys and excavations throughout Florida and worked extensively in the Caribbean, Mexico, the Bahamas, Bermuda, and Africa.

    He published widely in the field of nautical archaeology, authoring "Vanguard of Empire: Ships of Exploration in the Age of Columbus", "An Atlas of Maritime Florida", and "The Maritime Heritage of the Cayman Islands". He was also the editor of "Submerged History: Underwater Archaeology in Florida", and "Florida's Lost Galleon: The Emanuel Point Shipwreck".

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    He had four years of retirement; I hope he took the opportunity to enjoy them.
    RIP Dr. Smith.

    Yes, he fought hard against us treasure hunters. He once said and I quote, "I'd rather see everything rot at the bottom of the ocean than have it recovered by treasure hunters". Sorry, but I don't miss him.
