The wreck from Cape Gelidonya

At Cape Gelidonya crashed wreckage of the Bronze Age, whose research is also considered by many to be the first professional archaeological work. However, this title should be assigned to another job at Yassi Ada, where he was introduced to the use of multiple methods of exploration and documentation of the position used today. The first wreck was discovered by Fisher sponges Kemal Aras in 1954, this information went in 1958to Peter Throckmorton, an American journalist and amateur archaeologist who led the search for ancient shipwrecks. Although there was a professional archaeologist, his contribution to the development of underwater studies are very large. Even more annoying is the fact that they are often overlooked today, when discussing the history of underwater archaeological research.
