Information on the cost, organization and progress of diving on April 8 and April 9:

Askin Cambazoglu is the head of the dive center. He worked as an underwater archaeologist at the Bodrum Museum for eight years before taking on his own dive center in Bodrum. Askin told us he understands where we want to dive as underwater archaeologists. There are about 20 different dive sites around Bodrum. Most of them have some archaeological artifact such as broken amphorae. Askin has selected six dive sites for us. The briefing will be carried out on the boat before diving in German or English.
To the organization:
The dive boat DENIZCILER is about 20m long and has space for a maximum of 30 divers. The boat is anchored at Halikarnas Pier in Bodrum.

DEGUWA Conference in Bodrum

On the occasion of the international conference "In Poseidon's Realm XXIV Contact Zones: Archaeology between Water and Land, Coasts, Lake and River Shores" the delegations of the event partners DEGUWA, Academia Mediterranea Halicarnassensis, City of Bodrum and the Dokuz Eylül University Izmir were received in the Bodrum City Hall by Lord Mayor Ahmet Aras.    

During the following one-hour discussion, the newly elected Lord Mayor informed himself about the contents of the conference, underwater archaeology in general and the protection of the underwater cultural heritage. Other topics of discussion included the importance of the cultural heritage of Maussolleion and the "Pater Historiae" Herodotus for Bodrum. The mayor very much welcomed the fact that for the first time a scientific conference on underwater archaeology was being held in Bodrum.

The participants were united in their opinion that the important cultural heritage of the city and its surroundings should be better communicated to the local population, to which this conference also wants to make a small contribution.
