The Cape Gelidonya Re-excavation
Description

Half a century ago when underwater archaeology was still in its infancy, George F. Bass was entrusted with a project to excavate an entire wreck in situ. The wreck was located at a depth of 26-28 m,  and became the first wreck ever excavated by an archaeologist working underwater. This excavation would go on to become one of the cornerstones of underwater excavation methodology. George F. Bass has since been remembered as the first maritime archaeologist. This summer Dr. Bass, who has been active in the field since his first excavation at Cape Gelidonya in 1960, returned to the site with Harun Özda? and Nicolle Hirschfeld on the occasion of the 50th anniversary. Dr. Bass and Nicolle Hirschfeld both donated their time to share their experiences with EMMAF.
