The Shipwrecks of Xlendi Bay, Gozo, Malta



Xlendi Bay, Gozo, Malta, is a rich underwater site. It was discovered in 1961 by British Navy divers on a training mission. Since then, a significant number of artefacts has been retrieved but not well studied. This paper summarizes a recent detailed study of the archaeological material and describes five amphora types that have not yet been identified. It also takes deep-water surveys that have recently been conducted by various teams into consideration.
