Antikythera shipwreck - National Archaeological museum of Athens.

 
 

Photos from the temporary exhibition of the artifacts of the Antikythera shipwreck 60-50 BC in national archaeological museum of Athens. On a separated very nicely designed room sculptures vases and other items are placed. The most important exhibits are the Antikythera mechanism, the Antikythera youth and the Antikythera philosopher. The room of the museum shows videos from the Jacques Cousteau dives in the shipwrecks area and 3D photos of the artifacts. The early divings during the early 20th century resulted to a fatality and paralyzations due to the unknown consequences of very deep diving. A new diving effort has been commissioned by the american Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution after 2013 with the collaboration and supervision of the greek authorities.  The exhibition has been extended to 2014.
