marine archaeology


The shipwreck museum within Kyrenia Castle, Northern Cyprus, holds this beautiful 2300 year old ship as the jewel in its crown.   I can only imagine the wonder and excitement a find of this nature builds in those that discover its treasures.  I love the 1960s photographs documenting its exploration and subsequent recovery to the world of air and life.
