The Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaelogy was opened in 1964 with an aim to housing ancient shipwrecks from the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts surrounding Turkey.
They have succeeded and to date exhibit shipwrecks that include the oldest find ever made dating from the 14th century BC.
The cargo of the ships consisted mostly of copper ingots. There are also more than 150 pure-thin, resins, cobalt blue, turquoise and lavender-colored flat, round glass ingots.
