The ‘4th International Conference of Industrial Heritage’ will take place in Rijeka in Croatia from 22-23 April 2010. The theme of the conference is the city of Rijeka and its shipbuilding heritage.

Quaternary sea-levels challenged

The February 12th issue of the journal Science includes a paper by researchers at the University of Iowa challenging existing theories about the rate of ice accumulation and melting during the Quaternary.

Safe cracking

Divers have used a Broco torch to cut open a safe on the 123 year old SS Keilawarra shipwreck in New South Wales, Australia. The apparent theft occurred sometime in the last three years and an investigation by the state is underway.
