The research programme depends on the support of our worldwide collaborators

If you represent an organisation which you believe could help this project, we would very much like to hear from you.
More information on how to support us.​

We are particularly grateful to FUGRO for their multi-year sponsorship of a comprehensive programme of geophysical research and 3-dimensional surface and sub-surface mapping including ground, airborne and marine surveys, borehole drilling and core analysis, supplemented by sponsorship of a geology PhD student whose thesis was based on the data produced.

Continuing analysis of the data has further increased our understanding of the underlying geology and tectonic profile of the locations that are key to resolving the question at the heart of the Odysseus Unbound hypothesis – was Paliki a separate island at the time of Odysseus in the Late Bronze Age?
