Scratching below the surface…excavating the Phoenician shipwreck off Gozo
20/02/2019 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Lecture by Prof. Timmy Gambin, Department of Classics and Archaeology, University of Malta.
After over ten years of exploring the surface of the Phoenician Shipwreck of Xlendi Bay, a team led by the University of Malta has planned and executed the world’s first archaeological excavation by divers at a depth of 110 meters. This talk covers aspects related to the logistical preparations prior to the diving, new methodologies used for scientific work at this depth as well as results that have emanated from the past two seasons of investigations.
