Kenya's potential in the field of archaeological research is well known, even if above all it is those of earth, mainly connected to the important findings that concern our proto-antheniated in the area of Lake Turkana.
More recently, the country's approach to marine archaeology is more recent, looking for signs of the passage of the many sea expeditions that may have shipwrecked in the African portion of the Indian Ocean, with their often very precious cargoes.
This and more will be discussed today and tomorrow at a conference organized in Nairobi by the Italian Institute of Culture in collaboration with the National Museums of Kenya at the Michael Joseph Center in Nairobi.
The meetings, entitled "Italian archeologists between desert and sea", will also see the participation of the Superintendent of the Sea of Sicily Region Sebastiano Tusa, who in the last week has carried out several research, diving and sounding offshore of Malindi, in the bay of Ungwana.
Tusa will expose what are in his opinion and research results, the potential of the area and what could be hidden below.
In addition to the Italian expert, the conference will be attended by the director of the Malindi National Museum, Caesar Bita, who is the most important (perhaps the only) Kenyan marine archaeologist, and testimonies from the Deputy Director of the French Institute for Research in Africa, Chloé Durand, and archaeologists and university professors in Nairobi. All coordinated by the director of the Italian Institute of Franciscan Culture, with speeches by the Italian Ambassador Mauro Massoni and the director of the National Museums of Kenya Mzalendo Kibunja.
