Diving bells are deep-sea diving chambers that Anna Kjellström and Michelle D. Hamilton 37 provide divers a limited air supply, allowing them to work at depth on the ocean floor. They were typically built of wood in the shape of an inverted cup with an opening at the base. Divers would first position themselves inside the bell, and the weighted bell would then be lowered from a ship into the ocean, open base first. The internal pressure of the air inside the bell kept the ocean water from rushing inside, allowing the divers an air supply source while they engaged in salvage and recovery work.
