Underwater Survey in the southern Euboean Gulf

Survey work in the southern Euboean Gulf was organized by the Hellenic Institute of Marine Archaeology (HIMA) and the Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities (EUA) of the Ministry of Culture with the aim to record and document both ancient and Byzantine shipwrecks. The first survey took place in 2006 and so far four research seasons have been conducted. During these seasons, the project's participants documented fifteen previously unknown underwater archaeological sites (including shipwrecks, cargoes and ceramic deposits). They also mapped and raised as samples more than two hundred individual finds (amphorae, anchors, table wares, etc.), all of which are currently undergoing conservation. The material recovered along with the results and conclusions of the project will be published in a forthcoming volume of the Hellenic Institute of Marine Archaeology’s periodical, ENALIA.

This survey is part of the Southern Euboean Gulf Project.
