Dor (Israel) Field School - 1999

In the Autumn of 1999 a member of MADU joined the Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) on a visit to Israel to work on the underwater excavation, recording and recovery of artefacts from vessels that had sunk in the Mediterranean off the coast at Dor. 

The project was run in colaboration with students and members of the academic staff from nearby Haifa University.
