The Black Sea is a treasure trove of sunken ships and marine archaeologists have barely scratched the surface of what is hidden.

Ghost Ships of the Black Sea: Revealed (National Geographic Channel - Friday, 8pm) follows [Bob] Ballard as he returns to a miraculously well-preserved Byzantine shipwreck with state-of-the-art technology and a revolutionary $1.5 million robot known as "Hercules."

His plan is to excavate two shipwrecks for the first time ever, including one of the most pristine ancient vessels ever found.
