Renard Gluzman

Renard Gluzman, a PhD candidate at the Graduate School of Historical Studies, in Tel-Aviv University, on the subject of ‘Private Shipping in Renaissance Venice (1480-1550)’. The research is held under the supervision of Professor Benjamin Arbel.

The idea for this site was first conceived while cruising the southern shores of Cyprus on my small ketch boat some years ego. The names of few Venetian ships and merchant galleys that sunk in this area came to my mind. One cannot help wondering where these wrecks are now. The generous support of the Honor Frost Foundation presents a unique opportunity to address this issue.

We would be happy to hear your feedback, comments or suggestions.
