Heading to 80m to investigate a Roman ram from 241 BC.
The conditions are just terrible for our dive operations on the Battle of Egadi site.
We had a great dive this morning. Down to 80m to check an ancient ram that’s been sitting on the sea floor since the battle on 10 March 241 BC.
Home for the next couple of weeks, while we document the Battle of Egadi site off Favignana.
Today we say ciao Lipari, and head to Favignana.
We had our final dive in Capistello Bay this morning, finishing some survey measurements. Now we’re all packed for Favignana tomorrow.
Beautiful weather and calm seas for a few dives surveying the Capistello Bay wreck. We cleaned up some points and added a couple of ancient Roman anchors to the survey.
On my way back to Lipari and Favignana to dive Capistello Bay and The Battle of Egadi site for GUE and the Soprintendenza del Mare of Sicily.
Some information on the connection between PFO and IEDCS. A topic close to my heart…
Over the last few years, I’ve been part of a marine archaeology project in Sicily, for GUE and the Soprentendenza del Mare. While we prepare for this season’s expedition, Chicco, the project lead is opening an exhibition to make the InAccessible accessible. Enjoy. I sure do.
