Yenikapı Byzantine Shipwrecks of Istanbul, Turkey

Begun in 2004, salvage archaeological excavations in the Yenikapı district of Istanbul, Turkey, have unearthed the remains of Constantinople’s Theodosian Harbor, including 37 Byzantine shipwrecks of 5th- to 11th-century AD date. A small, international team of archaeologists, under the direction of Dr. Cemal Pulak of the Institute of Nautical Archaeology at Texas A&M University, conducted the excavation, documentation, and dismantling of eight of these shipwrecks. Dr. Rebecca Ingram, a Nautical Archaeology Program graduate and member of the Yenikapı team, will discuss INA’s work at this remarkable urban site.
