The Phoeni­cian Ship­wreck off Gozo

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

In 2016, the Univer­sity of Malta con­ducted another sea­son of un­der­wa­ter op­er­a­tions on the Phoeni­cian ship­wreck off Gozo. An in­ter­na­tional team of tech­ni­cal divers was used to record this unique site as well as to re­cover a num­ber of ar­chae­o­log­i­cal ob­jects.

Dr Timmy Gam­bin, Se­nior Lec­turer in Maritime Ar­chae­ol­ogy in the De­part­ment of Clas­sics and Ar­chae­ol­ogy, Univer­sity of Malta, will be de­liv­er­ing a pub­lic lec­ture cover­ing the lo­gis­tics, div­ing pro­ce­dures and the record­ing pro­cesses used this sea­son.

Work in progress and some pre­lim­i­nary re­sults from 2016 will be shared through nu­mer­ous il­lus­tra­tions, 3D work and short videos.

This pre­sen­ta­tion, sup­ported by APS Bank, will be held at 6pm on Wed­nes­day, 19 Oc­to­ber at the Su­per­in­ten­dence of Cul­tural Her­itage, 173, St Christo­pher Street, Val­letta.
