Underwater Archaeologist, Philanthropist, Archaeological Pioneer
Honor Frost was a scholar, explorer, author, and underwater archaeologist. An early pioneer in the field of underwater archaeology, she was a consummate archaeological illustrator. As early as 1959, she pioneered recording methods and photography on submerged shipwreck and harbor sites. Her work inspired and facilitated the broader scholarly study of these resources and she was an advocate for the protection of underwater cultural heritage. She left her inherited art collection to endow the Honor Frost Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to promote the advancement and research, including publication, of maritime archaeology with an emphasis on Lebanon, Syria and Cyprus.
