Sunday, April 14, 2019, 2:00-4:00 PM

The Kyrenia Shipwreck Collection Restoration Program

Concordia University

Sponsored by: McCann-Taggart Lecture, AIA National Lecture Series

Dr. Matthew Harpster
Koҫ University, Instanbul, Turkey

Dr. Harpster will describe the Kyrenia Shipwreck Collection Restoration Program. Found by a sponge diver in 1955, the 4th century BC shipwreck found off the coast of Kyrenia, Cyprus, has become a symbol of the island to the world, displayed on coins posters, passports and stamps. Greek-Turkic tensions prevented its proper curation. The restoration program is intended to remedy this. Dr. Harpster will describe the collection and his involvement in the restoration program.
