The Ain el Mreisseh Underwater Archaeology Project

This is a video about the underwater project we ran in 2013 in Beirut, Lebanon. It not only covers the archaeology of the site but our efforts to build cooperation with the local sport diving community. The good folks at the Calypso Diving Center at the Movenpick Hotel in Beirut played a key part in the project! The project was funded by the Honor Frost Foundation and the Institute of Nautical Archaeology, with further aid and support from Jubaili Brothers and the American University of Beirut, as well as the support of the Directorate General of Antiquities.

Our team consisted of Lucy Semaan, Rupert Brandmeier, Monica Jubayli, and Dorothy Chakra.
