From the Mediterranean to the Americas
Proud winners of The Captain Scott Society's 'Spirit of Adventure' Award 2019
Mission accomplished! Replica Phoenician ship, Phoenicia, arrived into the Dominican Republic on 31st December 2019, after 39 days at sea. Having departed Tunisia on 29.09.19, the success of the Expedition reinforces the notion that the Phoenicians had the capability and skill to sail to the Americas. The Phoenicia has since moved north to the USA for a stay in Fort Lauderdale and Miami.
The expedition aims to prove that the Phoenicians could have reached the Americas 2000 years before Christopher Columbus.
The Phoenicia is currently in Miami, North America
