July 2011 to present
RPM Nautical Foundation
Research: Classical through modern
Duties: Survey and documentation
Overview: Located across the Adriatic from Italy, Albania is the forgotten crossroads of the ancient Mediterranean. Sites such as the senators’ villas attest to the heavy Roman influence in the region. Communist rule outlawed diving and inadvertently protected coastal sites. The coastal survey has combined remote sensing with scuba surveys from the Greek border to Porto Palermo, locating sites dating from the Classical Period through WWII.
July 2010 to present
Pavlopetri Excavation, University of Nottingham and Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities
Research: Late Neolithic through early Iron Age
Duties: Survey and excavation
Overview: Greece has many ancient cities, but even the Parthenon architects would have thought Pavlopetri was ancient. The oldest submerged city in the world, it dates to 5,000 years ago and it sunk beneath the waves around 1000 BC. The site was identified by Nic Flemming in 1967 and recently revisited Jon Henderson and Chrysanthi Gallou from the University of Nottingham, who determined it was actually much older than the Late Bronze Age date that Cambridge attributed it.
