Submission + - Sunken WWI U-Boats a Bonanza for Historians (spiegel.de)

schwit1 writes: Archaeologists have found the rusting remains of 44 submarines off the United Kingdom’s coast, an oceanic graveyard made up mostly of vessels from the German Imperial Navy dating to World War I.

Der Spiegel reports a quartet of divers are now at work probing the massive trove of 41 German U-boats, and a trio of English submarines, found at depths of up to 50 feet, off England’s southern and eastern coasts.

"We owe it to these people to tell their story." says archaeologist Mark Dunkley.
