Grand Congloué

Grand Congloué
second century BCE, first century BCE (see description above)

Ancient Roman shipwreck site, SE France. Famous as the first ancient wreck site ever excavated by scubadivers. Problematic project (with no diving archaeologists) led to fundamental misinterpretations at the site, whcih actually consisted of two distinct, superimposed ancient wrecks dating respectively to the second and first centuries B.C.E. Harold E. Edgerton's first experience of diving on an ancient shipwreck (summer 1953); again in Sept. of 1954. Jacques-Yves Cousteau, Fernand Lallemand, Louis Malle participants.
