Ever since humans have had the "vessel" for a letter,
the ability to write and the time to do it, we can assume that
messages have been dropped into the sea.
Messages inside of bottles have been floated over a long
period of time by a variety of people, for a variety of reasons.
The earliest known sender recorded was the Greek philosopher Theophrastus
who, in around 310 B.C., threw sealed bottles into the Mediterranean
to prove that the inland body of water was formed by the inflow
of the Atlantic.
Queen Elizabeth I of England in the 16th Century used bottles
to carry intelligence reports. Messages in bottles have been chronicled
for centuries and include some of the most faous names in history.
For example, Ben Franklin, used message-carrying bottles to compile
a basic knowledge of East Coast currents in the mid-1700's, and
to this day is still used by the U.S. Navy.
Today, you can capture that old world spirit using modern
technology to ensure your message reaches its final destination.
