The 19th-Century Akko 1 Shipwreck, Israel: Hull-construction report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Akko 1 shipwreck was found in 4m of water inside the ancient harbour of Akko, Israel, and was fully recorded under water. Several hull-components were retrieved and documented on las well as all the finds. The results of the archaeological research and the study of the historical background suggest that the Akko 1 shipwreck is the remains of an eastern Mediterranean naval auxiliary brig, built at the end of the first quarter of the 19th century, and sailing under the Egyptian flag. The ship was apparently wrecked during the 1840 naval bombardment of Akko.
