26.12.18 6th  Lecture in the Series Men and The Sea Caesarea, a Major Hub of Roman Maritime Trade,
Dr. Emmanuel Nantet School of Marine Sciences, University of Haifa, English

Caesarea, a significant harbour in the Roman maritime trade: Caesarea's underwater infrastructures have been we explored, as well as its numerous buildings on the shore. But the actual signficance of the harbour can be examined through a close study of the archaeological and written sources related to the ships, such as a few accounts of journeys originated in Caesarea. Above all, the recent underwater excavation of a shipwreck in Caesarea provides archaeological evidence for the connectivity of this harbour with the rest of the Mediterranean.
