The Southern Euboean Gulf Project

During June and July of 2010, the fourth archaeological season in southern Euboea was completed under the auspices of both the Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities (EUA) and the Hellenic Institute of Marine Archaeology (HIMA). The main purpose of this project, which began in 2006, is to locate, investigate, document and evaluate ancient and Byzantine wreck sites in a wide area of the southern Euboean Gulf. The 2010 season had two main goals, (1) underwater investigation of the island complex of Patalioi Marmari, and (2) preliminary excavation of the late Hellenistic shipwreck off Styra.

The underwater survey in Southern Euboean Gulf is a part of the Southern Euboean Gulf Project.
