About the Event

Explore the unique opportunities for understanding ancient civilizations through underwater archeology. Focusing on the Uluburun Shipwreck, I plan to discuss how the artifacts found within the ship’s holds led to an enormous breakthrough in piecing together how extensive and far-reaching trade routes were at the height of the Bronze Age. From there, I would like to lead a discussion on commonly believed reasons for the Bronze Age Collapse, and whether or not the contents of the Uluburun Shipwreck hint at over dependence on foreign trade as a potential reason.

Students will enjoy a thorough look at the insights into the Bronze Age that have been discovered with the Uluburun Shipwreck. In both large and small group segments, students will analyze the artifacts found within the wreck, along with the remains of the ship itself, while also learning about how the information collected has been interpreted by professionals. By the end of the class, students will be able to explain how underwater archeology has contributed to our understanding of otherwise mysterious eras in history, such as the Bronze Age Collapse.
