Spreading the News

We’ve been really fortunate to be able to inspire people about the Antikythera shipwreck.

Web, print and broadcast media have all helped share the excitement regarding new techniques and finds, taking a sunken time capsule located off an island with 19 permanent residents, around the globe.

Coverage has been on a daily basis in Greek web, print and broadcast media, with many other mainstream media outlets also sharing the news in other languages and countries.

News of the project even topped a Facebook trending list.
