Jim Goold gave a lecture for the Institute of Nautical Archaeology (INA) on “The Battle of the Egadi Islands Project: Past, Present, and Future”. He was joined by Stephen DeCasien, a PhD candidate from the Nautical Archaeology program at Texas A&M University.
“A webinar about The Battle of the Egadi Islands Project delivered by INA General Counsel and Chairman of RPM Nautical Foundation, Jim Goold. The Egadi Islands Project began 20 years ago as a partnership between RPM Nautical and the Soprintendenza del Mare – Regione Sicilia in order to locate the site of Rome’s naval victory over Carthage, which ended the First Punic War in 241 BCE. Since then, the team has documented 26 naval rams, increasing by a factor of five the number of ancient rams available for study. This talk highlights the past, present, and future of the project and presents new finds from the site.”
