Archeologists underwater

15 February 2010 / 15:02:39  

We present you moments of the archaeological excavation of the sunken ship during the Mycenaean era near the island of Poros. The study of the findings at the bottom of the sea can give valuable information about a very critical historic period in the region of the Aegean Sea.

"Saint Nicolas" boat is the mobile laboratory of the researchers and the displayed picture shows where the sunken ship near the island Modi is located.

The pictures also show the sonar torpedo with the help of which the morphological imprint of the bottom is carried out. The geo-archeological study of the bottom is made with the assistance of the University of Patras under the guidance of Prof. G. Papateodorou.

The study of the sunken ship is carried out by the Institute for underwater archaeological research in Greece under the leadership of Christos Agouridis.
