Twelve underwater archaeology students under the supervision of Timmy Gambin were in Malta undergoing an intensive three week course with the aim to gather more hands on experience in this genre. The students together with their tutors were working on the Honor Frost site which was first discovered in 1967.

The Mellieha Bay Project

In 1967, Honor Frost carried out a brief but fruitful excavation on a Roman shipwreck in Mellieha Bay, Malta. In June 2013, the Department of Classics & Archaeology at the University of Malta shall be conducting an intensive survey on this site. This project has been made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Honor Frost Foundation. The main objectives of the 2013 project are to establish the current condition of this site and to proceed with recording its current state of preservation. Furthermore, fieldwork carried out will be used to train young archaeologists from Malta as well as from other parts of the Mediterranean. The Honor Frost Foundation grant has enabled the Department to provide a unique training experience. Results from the 2013 project will contribute to a better understanding of the site thus facilitating the formulation of a long-term strategy for its management and protection.
