Underwater Archaeology, Research and Technique

CULTNAT, Bibliotheca Alexandrina

The exhibition presents modern technique employed for the underwater archaeological quest. It shows some of the most interesting underwater archaeological sites in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. In September 2004, four panels covering the underwater archaeology of Alexandria and Aboukir bay were added. Two of them present the excavations led by Franck Goddio in collaboration with the Supreme Council for Antiquities in Egypt (SCA), in Alexandria’s Eastern Harbour and in Aboukir Bay

The exhibition has been designed in Arabic, French and English and produced by the French Ministry of Culture in association with the Bibliotheca Alexandrina and CULTNAT (Center for Documentation of Cultural and Natural Heritage).
