My Opinion Before Sanisera, my knowledge concerning underwater archaeology was limited. However, while I participated in their program I was taught how to conduct both linear and circular surveys while keeping the lines tense underwater. I was shown how to measure and map out the locations of sites that we were focusing on. I was familiarized with the historical background of the artifacts that we were exposed to as well as architectural differences related to the building patterns we would often see in ruins or sites. A lot of time was dedicated to the classification of amphora: style, location, etc. I did not truly realize how much I had learned until the program had ended. It has helped shape my view of the archaeological world.
