The Survey Begins

An international team of archaeologists, divers and digital technicians has assembled in Hurghada and is now on site at the S.S. Thistlegorm wreck.

Ahead of us lies 10 days of data capture and processing of both 3D photogrammetry models and underwater 360 degree video.

The Thistlegorm Project is part of a wider maritime archaeology study called Presence in the Past, which is a Newton Fund project directed by Dr Jon Henderson, from the School of Archaeology at the University of Nottingham, in partnership with Al Shams (Cairo) and Alexandria Universities in Egypt.
