Dr. Rebecca Ingram earned her M.A. and Ph.D. through the Nautical Archaeology Program at Texas A&M University, and she currently serves as archivist for the Institute of Nautical Archaeology. Under the direction of Prof. Cemal Pulak, Rebecca spent several seasons studying and documenting ships and shipwrecks in Turkey, including the 400-year-old Ottoman sultan’s galley, Kadırga, on display in the Istanbul Naval Museum, and glass beads from the Late Bronze Age shipwreck at Uluburun, housed in the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology. From 2005 to 2008, she worked year-round with the Institute of Nautical Archaeology team at the Theodosian Harbor excavations at Yenikapı in Istanbul, Turkey, a fascinating site yielding more than three dozen Byzantine shipwrecks. In recent years, Rebecca has worked as an editorial assistant for the American Journal of Archaeology, created exhibits for a natural history museum, and managed museum and archival collections.
