First Arabic Children's book on maritime archaeology
The team from the Maritime Archaeology Outreach Project have published their first children’s book in Arabic on underwater cultural heritage. “The Adventures of Bahar and Nejma”, was developed in cooperation with the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. The story is given away to children at the end of MAOP workshops. Through the story, Bahar and Nejma introduce children, from 9 to 12 years old, to the significance and value of underwater cultural heritage. Moreover, the story raises the children’s awareness of the marine environment and the need for its protection.
