We plan expeditions
2023: the history of the Phoenician Sailors. Our voyage will take us to Spain, Carthage, Malta, Rhodes, Cyprus and Lebanon.
2024: the history of the Arab Sailors. We sail through the Suez Canal and we use the “Periplus of the Erythraean Sea” as a lose guide for our trip. We start with Egypt, Jordan, Sudan and Ethiopia. We sail South from the Red Sea to the Indian Ocean.
Our funds are limited and we rely on private donors, corporations and private Foundations to fund young scholars and research.
