Three ancient shipwrecks which have already revealed important findings were discovered recently off the coast of Kasos Island in Greece’s Aegean Sea.
During the exploration, which was funded by the Kasos Association of New York and was supported by the municipality of the island, divers discovered a series of archaeologically important wrecks dating all the way back to classical antiquity.
More than one-third of the total area designated to be explored was covered by a total of sixty-seven team dives during the 2019 exploratory season.
The initiative will continue in 2020 and 2021 to discover, study and identify findings in what is believed to have served as an important trading route and maritime crossroads area between civilizations for many centuries.
This year’s discoveries include wrecks stretching from modern times all the way back to ancient Greece.
