The Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies (RIMS), the university’s center for research in the maritime studies field,  recently released their  newsletter covering their research and achievements from the 2014-2015 academic year. The Institute bridges between Humanities, Sciences and Technology and conducts numerous cooperative research projects with other research institutions in Israel and abroad

This annual scholarly piece begins with a statement from Prehistoric Professor Michal Artzy:

“Dear Friends,

I have much pleasure in presenting our double-issue report 39–40, introducing some of the research projects conducted under the umbrella of the Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies in 2014–15. RIMS researchers, research associates and graduate students of the Department of Maritime Civilizations joined forces in advancing multidisciplinary marine and coastal research, resulting in new important scientific achievements…”

The article details the institute’s advancements, such as a replica of the renowned Ma’agan Mikael Ship, conservation of the Dor 2001/1 shipwreck, excavation of the submerged Neolithic Water Well at the Kfar Samir Site (Dado beach) Haifa, and more. The newsletter also describes the theses submitted the previous year.
