The British Museum just published an article on Jewellery from Late Antique Egypt by
Yvonne Petrina featuring one of the artifacts uncovered as part of our excavations on the Sunken Egyptian City of Heracleion. An ornately decorated finger ring depicting a double oil-lamp, with a delicately hinged lid.
I was especially excited to see it, because I remember well the day I discovered it and brought it to the surface for Underwater Archaeologist Franck Goddio, director of the excavation for the IEASM.
When publications like this come out it provides a confirmation that the artifacts we encounter are not only beautiful to behold, but also contribute to a greater understanding of history.
