In 2003, “ΝΑΟΥΔΟΜΟΣ”, a group of scientists, began reconstructing a prehistoric penteconter as part of an experimental nautical archaeology research program. This is the ship’s tale, from choosing the trees to its two-year-long construction and its eventual trip to sea. The Argonauts’ mythical ship endured ten thousand strokes a day to travel from Volos to Ancient Colchis. Our modern-day Argo has to complete a 1.200-mile journey in 60 days. Will the 74 volunteer rowers withstand the trial? Or will this Argonautic expedition founder, thus turning into an endless odyssey?
