<i>"Basically I don't know why the NIO have not mentioned anyone else, as in all the discussion, all three sides were always going to be represented in any release, so I can understand Grahams anger at this, and I expect Monty and the SES will also not be happy with the press release."</i>


Reading the NIO press release again, though, they state:

<i>"A team of underwater archaeologists from National institute of Oceanography NIO have successfully `unearthed’ evidence of submerged structures off Mahabalipuram and established first-ever proof of the popular belief that the Shore temple of Mahabalipuram is the remnant of series of total seven of such temples built that have been submerged in succession. <b>The discovery was made during a joint underwater exploration with Scientific Exploration Society, U.K."</b></i>


Agreed there's no mention of GH's instrumental role in bringing the two parties together, and the role of the SES tends to be downplayed, but contrary to what you suggest above they do get a mention.

Regards,
Damian
