2016 Coast of Napoli, Italy

italian explorationThe 2016 program will be carried out on the west coast of Italy and the northern coast of Sicily. Here, Aurora Trust has located and identified numerous Roman and Greek shipwrecks. Aurora will explore these shipwrecks laden with ancient amphora and other cargo that have been lost for more than 2,000 years. They will create a 3D mosaic map that will help solve some of the mysteries of where these ships were going, what they were carrying and how they possibly sank. Aurora will work with archeologists to determine all that can be known about the various finds.

Some artifacts will be removed from the sea floor to be curated and displayed in regional exhibits.
