       Maritime Archaeological Survey of the Port of Sanitja

Preparing a transect tape with a team of six underwater archaeologists to conduct a circular survey around some previously identified Roman Amphora cargo off the Island of Menorca, Spain. Clear underwater communication during an activity such as this is vital for a successful survey. Our team located several more cargo pieces that eventually led to a larger concentration of cargo from a Roman merchant ship.
