The Argo is back

I've been busy discovering some of the less well-known archaeological sites (land sites)of Attiki these days and haven't been posting much but then again ...... (censured).... Of course, there's been a personnel change at the Department of Underwater Antiquities which might bring about some other changes - we'll see.
In the meantime the only piece of news is that a group of shipbuilders in Volos are working hard at the moment trying to build the mythical ship 'Argo' used by Jason to go after the Golden Fleece. I'm not quite sure how much of a role science is actually playing in this project but it should be interesting to see the result. Apparently, the ship is being built based on vase and wall paintings.
