The discovery of Zygris/Ladamantia; an Ancient Harbour along the Northwest
Coast of Egypt
Since 2015, with the kind support of the Honor Frost Foundation, the
Alexandria University Centre for Maritime Archeology and Underwater Cultural
Heritage has been carrying out a systematic underwater archaeological survey
for the site of Zygris/Ladamantia (present Marsa Bagoush), c. 250km west of
Alexandria. The project revealed a wealth of evidence for intensive maritime
activities that extend from the 3rd century BC until the early 20th century
AD, which makes Zygris/Ladamantia one of the key anchorages on the Egyptian
Mediterranean coastline. Accordingly, this lecture will present the
discoveries that were made so far, and will look into the upcoming phase of
the project.
