Aya Omar Esmail - 2019 - CMAUCH Scholar
During my undergraduate studies at the Department of Greek & Roman Archaeology, Cairo University, it was the first time I heard about maritime archaeology. Since then, my passion for maritime archaeology has been growing.
Moreover, I was involved in a number of workshops and training courses in several institutions such as the Alexandria Library and the Egyptian Museum, where I have learned more about Underwater Cultural Heritage.
Therefore, after I obtained my BA (Hons) in Archaeology I pursued my passion. In 2019 I was honoured to be awarded the HFF Scholarship to study for my MA in Maritime Archaeology at the Alexandria University Centre for Maritime Archaeology & Underwater Cultural Heritage.
