01-12-2011 EMMAF expands its geographical focus to include Israel

Throughout its history the Israeli coast had been a crossroads and a busy trading route for many civilizations. Commercial, fishing, seafaring and naval warfare activities have left an abundance of archaeological remains and priceless artifacts. EMMAF is happy to expand its focus to this part of the eastern Mediterranean, which plays such a significant role in the study of ancient trade. We would like to welcome experienced lecturer, professor of maritime history and underwater archaeologist Ruthy Gertwagen to the EMMAF team. As director of the Israeli area, she will help us to take another step towards covering the whole eastern Mediterranean in a comprehensive manner.
