Timmy Gambin is a well-known figure among diving enthusiasts. Especially if we are talking about wrecks and underwater archaeology. He has been involved in countless projects, contributing to the exploration and study of wrecks from various historical periods that rest in the waters off Malta.
He is an Associate Professor of Maritime Archaeology in the Department of Classics and Archaeology, University of Malta, from where I obtained a B.A. in History. After completing his undergraduate studies he went on to attain a M.A. in Maritime Archaeology and History at the University of Bristol. It was in the UK where he continued his education doing postgraduate studies and preparing for a doctorate in Maritime Archaeology. In 2001 he became a visiting lecturer and in 2012 took up a full-time Senior Lecturer position.
The presence of Prof Timmy Gambin on the list of speakers at Diving Talks 2023 shows is no coincidence! The organisers of the diving congress have once again proven that they want to bring in the greatest experts in their fields. And in the world of underwater research, history and underwater archaeology, Prof Gambin is undoubtedly a leading authority and attending his lecture is a fantastic experience.
Over the years he has been involved in numerous research and scientific projects. He has led numerous underwater marine surveys in various parts of the Mediterranean Sea, including Spain, Italy and Croatia.
Notable among the most important is the PaleoMed Project with the CNRS (Aix en Provence), which aimed to reconstruct the ancient coastal landscapes and environment of the Maltese Islands, where archaeologists collaborate with geomorphologists and palynologists in a multidisciplinary approach.
The Ancient Cisterns Project from CalPoly (USA), which focuses on investigating underground water management systems through the use of small remote-controlled vehicles equipped with a variety of sensors.
Prof Gambin has been a guest speaker at some of the biggest diving conferences and events in the world and it is very possible that you have already had the opportunity to attend his lecture. However, someone with his knowledge and experience will certainly surprise you with something new.
I consider myself lucky to combine my passion for WWII history with archaeology – especially in the growing field of aviation archaeology underwater. With well over 50 aircraft discovered and explored so far, submerged aircraft crash sites are fast becoming an integral part of my work. One of my ongoing projects is the post-excavation work on the finds from the Phoenician Shipwreck off the island of Gozo. Datable to 700BC, it is currently the oldest known shipwreck in the central Mediterranean. Also ongoing is a project to record a Punic shipwreck in deep waters situated off Gozo.
