Thursday Free Lecture by Underwater Archaeologist Franck Goddio

You are invited to this free lecture by National Museum's partner and renowned French underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio at the NM Auditorium, Old Legislative Building, Burgos Avenue, Manila, 10 am on May 25, 2017. Seats are limited so please email Mr. Clyde Jagoon, Officer-in-Charge of the NM Maritime

and Underwater Cultural Heritage Division: scbjagoon@yahoo.com or call starting Monday at (02) 5271157 during office hours 9 am - 5 pm.

Mr. Goddio and the Far Eastern Foundation for Nautical Archaeology (FEFNA) has developed some specific electronic survey equipments and innovative procedures which were tested in the Philippines during joint missions with the National Museum of the Philippines in order to implement a vast scientific program of research aiming at deepening and illustrating our knowledge on the maritime history of the Philippines.

A multidisciplinary approach, which uses at the same time sophisticated geophysical and geological survey techniques, has enabled to locate several junks from the 11th to the 16th centuries, two galleons from the end of 16th and 17th centuries as well as two British East India Company vessels from the 18th century. One of the most renowned of this and was a subject of a touring exhibition in Europe and a permanent exhibition at the National Museum is the Galleon San Diego. The archaeological excavations of those shipwrecks of different types and periods brought an important quantity of historical information which enriched the knowledge on the maritime trade in the Philippines and in the Nanhai region thorough those centuries.
