English translation of the French manuscript Canope Est which was to be published originally by Periplus, London. A highly technical text in the field of underwater archaeology. Some of the precision instruments devised for the project by the Hilti foundation had no equivalent in English.
This book presents the first topographic outline of the city of Heracleion and the nearby Ptolemaic and Byzantine sites, all currently being excavated underwater in the Bay of Aboukir. This volume is the product of ten years of survey and excavation.
