WRECKS IN THE GREEK SEAS 1830-1951
THE UNDERWATER HERITAGE OF NAVY'S STAKEHOLDING FUND & MARINERS' PENSION FUND (el Μ.Τ.Ν. & Ν.Α.T.)
The aim of this website is to present to all those who are interested in the matter the framework that governs sea wrecks lying in the Greek seas, and especially those dated between 1830 to 1951. We hope that this will be the incentive for the opening of a productive dialogue regarding one of the most crucial issues of our culture. This article, as well as the study, will attempt to answer timely questions such as:
a. Who owns the wrecks of the ships and combat aircrafts of the 2nd World War; and who owns the wrecks of the commercial ships that were sunk during the same period?
b. Who is vested with the necessary authority for granting to one permission to study contemporary shipwrecks (dated before 50 years ago) and, on the other hand, being able to design their enhancement and development?
c. The Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities’ jurisdiction applies specifically to what? And how it involves itself in the matter of the contemporary shipwrecks/monuments?
