Welcome to the Aurora Trust Foundation


The Aurora Trust was formed by Craig Mullen and Ian Koblick to advance the world’s understanding of the ocean environment, most particularly its marine cultural heritage hidden for thousands of years on the seafloor and to educate the public concerning the historic role the oceans have played in connecting different cultures; its commerce and conflicts.

Aurora has assembled a world class team of marine archeologists and ocean scientists to undertake exploration of the seafloor in search of the lost remains of our maritime past. The Aurora team, utilizing state of the art tools to explore the ocean depths has made numerous magnificent discoveries in the marginal waters of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea.
