Major grant for exploring Israel's coastline
MARINE ARCHAEOLOGY: Ancient harbors, sunken ships: Supporting marine archaeology off Israel’s coast. “The world’s oceans and seas are the last great frontier of archaeological exploration, and the Mediterranean Sea holds the oldest and most densely traversed maritime network in the world,” said Professor Thomas Levy in the Department of Anthropology at UC San Diego (University of Haifa via Jewish News Syndicate). This article announces a Koret Foundation grant of over $1 million for the archaeological exploration of the coastline of Israel. Congratulations to both Universities on this collaboration.
