Shipwrecks and the Maritime Heritage of Millennia of Sicilian Connections

Situated amid Mediterranean connections between south and north, west and east, Sicily offers an archaeologically rich record for interactions spanning millennia: ancient ports and shipwrecked cargos, traditions and tools of fishing, and the boats that provided (and prevented) mobility for sailors, traders, warriors, pilgrims, and displaced peoples. This dynamic material record is the subject of ongoing archaeological excavation, 3D heritage documentation and archival research, interviews with local practitioners, and public engagement initiatives. This project aims to create multimedia work that challenges the public to engage with the objects, memories, and entangled realities of past and present movements across the sea.
