Underwater Treasures of Caesarea

Underwater Treasures of Caesarea May 17, 2016

I'm looking forward to visiting Caesarea Maritimia again in about two weeks' time with a group of students from Butler University and Christian Theological Seminary. It's one of the early stops on our visit of Israel. For better or worse, we won't be diving underwater when we're there. But here's a wonderful video and press release from the Israel Antiquities Authority about the recent finds made by divers exploring a shipwreck off the coast.

The 1,600 year old ship contained thousands of coins as well as many other objects of great historical interest.

Of related interest, see the article in the Times of Israel about the IAA's latest effort to crack down on illegal antiquities trading.
