About Per Åkesson
Living in Stockholm, Sweden. Editor of Nordic Underwater Archaeology. I started diving in 1978, inspired by Cousteau. I am an amateur underwater archaeologist and a member or the Swedish Underwater Archaeology Society.
In 1993 I searched for wrecks in Estonia using side scan sonar. In 1996 I sailed on a 13th century replica ship to Estonia. No motor, just sail and oars. In 1997 I excavated wrecks in Poland, in 1998 I participated in the Pandora expedition, and in 1999 wreck search in Bretagne and excavation on San Pedro de Alcantara.
For my living, I write articles for newspapers and magazines, translate technical texts, teach math, hold computer courses for beginners ("Click that Start button!"), and edit or develop web sites. In 2002 I worked as a TV reporter for Swedish National Television. If you want my services, let me know.
If I had Janis Joplin by my side, I'd ask her to sing "Oh Lord, won't you buy me a rebreathing kit". A rebreather is a piece of expensive diving equipment.
