Welcome

homeThe Antikythera Shipwreck holds more secrets. Advanced technology will reveal them.

In 1900-01, Greek sponge divers recovered fabulous bronze and marble statues, beautiful glass objects from the eastern Mediterranean, coins from Asia Minor, luxury goods from the entire Hellenic world, and the Antikythera Mechanism. In 1976, Jacques Cousteau’s team recovered gold jewelry, bronze statuettes, and hundreds of small finds. Our team has mapped the wreck, and pinpointed its bow and stern. In between lies the main cargo hold, covered with sediment. Beginning this season, our advanced technologies will coax the wreck to reveal its secrets.
