The Late Bronze Age Shipwreck off the islet of Modi
Description

The Late Bronze Age shipwreck was first located in 2003 off the north rocky slopes of Modi. Research campaigns in 2005-2007 recorded and raised all visible ceramics from the ship’s cargo. Preliminary reports were published in the Journal ENALIA and were presented at various symposia. Due to the potential of the Modi shipwreck to add to our understanding of a critical period of Aegean prehistory, HIMA and the director of the project decided to conduct a full scale underwater excavation during the fall of 2009 and 2010.
