Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project

The Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project (@BlackSeaMAP) was a three-year interdisciplinary expedition researching ancient coastlines and seafaring history of the Bulgarian Black Sea and included the discovery of the world’s oldest, intact shipwreck. It sought to further understand origins of the Black Sea boundaries and how sea level change impacted early man. During its three field seasons, Black Sea MAP unveiled over 60 astonishingly well-preserved shipwrecks helping write the history of nearly 2500 years of seafaring tradition.
