The archaeological subaquatic heritage

The underwater archaeological heritage refers to all those human remains that have a cultural or historic nature which either periodically or continuously have been under the sea and can be studied with an archaeological methodology approach.  

These remains are witnessing our history. The underwater archaeological heritage provides information about submerged towns and old ports, war episodes, cultural and commercial exchanges among people, sunken ships that tell us about the history and life on board of their occupants, etc. Such past can be reconstructed thanks to a thorough research work. 

Through the Underwater Archaeology Centre, the IAPH carries out research, protection, preservation and spreading actions of such submerged cultural heritage off the Andalusian coast, as well as training for experts on this field.
