With Captain Sailors Three (Part 1)
This film was produced by the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation and the National Geographic Society, 1978. It follows the discovery and archaeological excavation of a late 4th-century merchant vessel wrecked off Kyrenia, Cyprus. The excavation--the first of its kind-- was carried out by an international team representing 12 different countries and led by Michael Katzev of the American Institute of Nautical Archaeology (now the Institute of Nautical Archaeology based at Texas A&M University). The team spent two summers excavating the site which revealed layers of cargo and numerous other objects including dining wares and finally the remains of the ship's hull itself, which were recovered in fragments and conserved--in the case of some pieces, for two years--before being used to reconstruct nearly 75% of the original hull. Reconstruction of the Kyrenia ship was directed by J. Richard Steffy whose life and work has been chronicled by his son Loren Steffy in a new book, "The Man Who Thought Like a Ship," published by Texas A&M University Press.
