Our Sponsors and Supporters


The excavation at Pabuç Burnu would not have been possible without the generous support—financial and otherwise—of the Institute of Nautical Archaeology, Texas A&M University, the Smothers-Bruni Foundation, the National Geographic Society, the Eugene McDermott Foundation, and Turkish Airways. Special mention is due INA board member Claude Duthuit, who not only joined us in the field on occasion, but also bailed the expedition out of financial difficulties several times. Mary A. Tooze generously supported the research of the hull remains through her Scholarship in Nautical Archaeology at Texas A&M University.

The excavation team is grateful to the Turkish Ministry of Culture for permitting our excavation and to the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology and its director Oğuz Alpözen for all their support. Yaşar Yıldız, of the Bodrum Museum, represented the Ministry of Culture both seasons and aided in the excavation. We are especially grateful to the INA staffs in College Station and Bodrum, for their tireless assistance in the more mundane aspects of organizing, funding, and coordinating such an endeavor, and to the conservation staff of the Bodrum Museum, for their skillful work in cleaning, conserving, and documenting all the artifacts we raised from the seabed.
