New Franck Goddio Website is Online

With latest films, photographs and background stories

The new website of underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio and his team is online: www.franckgoddio.org presents the latest news on his underwater archaeological projects taking place throughout the world.

The website features Goddio’s research projects in the eastern harbour of Alexandria and the sunken ancient cities Heracleion and Canopus off the coast of Egypt, as well as his work off Cuba and the Philippines, where he discovered and excavated shipwrecks of historical significance.

Photo galleries, underwater film sequences from the excavation sites, graphical reconstructions of the sunken cities, information on techniques and equipment used during the research process and updates on thematic publications and public events give an inside view of the world of underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio who has been directing archaeological expeditions in cooperation with national heritage authorities since the early 1980's. His research has been supported by the Hilti Foundation since 1996 and their shared commitment to the rigorous scientific study and publication of his work resulted in the foundation of the Oxford Centre for Maritime Archaeology at the University of Oxford in 2003.
