Berlin

The ancient Roman city of Sanisera is located on a natural harbor. For this reason, we are lucky that the land excavations and the underwater activities take place in the same area, allowing us to develop projects in the terrestrial and marine environment, using different methodologies and techniques with a great team of professionals and experts. Also, you can learn from the beginning excavation techniques and methodology. During the excavation, you will find archaeological remains from the classical period including Roman pottery, amphorae, glass, etc. that you will learn how to identify in the laboratory. The course lasts 18 days and will be divided into two different periods. The first nine days will be dedicated to underwater archaeology activities while the rest of the course will be focused on everything that is related to a land excavation.

If you are interested in learning underwater survey techniques and methodology and apply them in a Roman port where you will find amphorae, anchors and the remains of shipwrecks, then this is a good option for you. After more than 10 years of survey, our research team has new objectives, focused in a survey that will be held underwater, more than 18 meters deep. Located in the north coast of Menorca and nearby the Roman city of Sanisera, we consider essential to dive up to 30 meters, since there are many possibilities to discover, including more shipwrecks of Roman times or the past centuries.
