クロードさん!有難う!

フランスのダイバーといえばクストーが有名ですが、彼のチーフダイバーとして活躍したクロード・デュテュイさん(75)がこのほどトルコのボドルム海洋考古学研究所に1ミリオンユーロ(約1.5億円)を寄付しました!

クロードさんはかの有名な画家マチスの孫にあたりマチス財団を管理しています。彼は50年以上も海洋考古学に携わっており以前にも寄付を行っています。彼はちょうど1月に和歌山県串本にエルトゥールル号事前調査にも参加しました。今後彼の貢献をトルコの海洋考古学の貢献に役立てるために積極的に活動を行っていくことでしょう。

ダイブが終わり390円のお弁当を食べているところ。おいしかったそうです。

ちなみにクロードさんは日本好き!また日本のダイバーにも一緒になり串本ではみんなの人気者でした。75才にしてダイビングを楽しんでいました。

FAMOUS French archaeologist and oceanographer Captain Jacques Yves Cousteau’s chief diver Claude Duthuit has donated 1 million euros to the İnstitute of Nautical Archaeology (INA) in Bodrum.

The director of INA, Tufan Turanlı, said, “With his financial and moral support, Duthuit enabled us to discover many of our cultural riches and gain an important place in the world of archaeology.”

Duthuit, 75, is the grandchild of world famous French painter Henry Matisse. He is the executive board chairman of the Matisse Foundation that supports art organizations and underwater research in France.

Recently he went to the city of Kushimoto in Japan to support the excavations carried out by INA to find the ruins of the Ottoman frigate Ertuğrul.

He said he would give financial and moral support to the excavations that are expected to last nearly five years, and donated 1 million euros to the institute to reveal and conserve underwater riches off the coasts of Turkey.

He also gave financial support to projects to find the ruins of Gelidonya, Yassiada, Kaş-Uluburun and Eastern Rome. Duthuit’s donations to Turkey over the last 30 years have exceeded 3 million euros.

Turanlı, who has carried out underwater excavations and research in Bodrum since 1973, said, “Duthuit is a scientist who is in love with Turkey. He has gained the trust and love of Turkish archaeologists and officials due to his support for underwater archaeological excavations in Bodrum and the surrounding area.”

Duthuit said he would continue to make contributions to reveal the world’s oldest ruins on Turkish coasts until the end of his life.

“I have joined excavations conducted in Turkey for about five decades. My wife and İ spend most of the year in Bodrum. We had the best days in our life in Bodrum. Turkey is my second country. We are in love with Bodrum and the Aegean region. I also believe that underwater ruins in Turkey are the most important ruins in the world and they must be revealed,” he said.
