Institut Européen d’Archéologie Sous-Marine (IEASM) Claimed


Institut Européen d’Archéologie Sous-Marine IEASM was founded in 1987 as a French non-profit organization by President Franck Goddio. Its aim is the location, exploration and excavation of sunken sites. IEASM calls upon scientists and specialists of different scientific fields to support its research missions, to study and publish the findings. Furthermore it sets up exhibitions allowing the general public to get access to its discoveries.

The underwater discoveries behind the exhibition “The Greeks in Egypt” are the

product of the team working of the IEASM under Franck Goddio’s leadership. This

dedicated international group includes diverse specialists such as archaeologists,

Egyptologists, divers, numismatists, ceramic specialists, academics and conservators, electronic engineers, technicians, artists, cameramen, and photographers.

In total, some thirty — and sometimes up to fifty — people from France, Egypt, Great Britain, the United States, Germany, Spain, Russia and the Philippines work side by side with the excavation director. Generally, the team gathers twice a year, in spring and autumn, on board the support vessel Princess Duda to search and excavate the sites of Alexandria Canopus and Thonis-Heracleion.
