One of our students, Patrik Tesař, joined the Monoxylon III expedition team to try a prehistoric voyage through the Aegean Sea “in practice”. The third part of the Monoxylon project was long awaited, it took place at the turn of May and June 2019 – more than twenty years after the last voyage.
The expedition returned to the Aegean region, this time to cross the route from mainland Lavria through a chain of islands to the island of Mélos. From this part, the route continued to the island of Santorini and to the island of Crete, which was the longest distance from the entire route. The aim of the voyage was to emphasize the importance of the tradition of wooden ships for the oldest sea voyage in the Mediterranean.
