On the suggestion of Auron Tare who had dived in the area of the three islands previously, a dive investigation around the islands was conducted. A brief dive survey on the southernmost side of the outermost island noted a large pottery deposit, primarily of Ottoman-period ceramics. Dr. Anastasi collected samples for analysis which were taken to the AIA office for conservation. Prior to conservation, the sherds will be analyzed by Katie Johnson, a graduate student at the Univ. of Chicago who is documenting and studying Ottoman material culture.
