In 2008, ProMare initiated a project in Italy, collaborating with the Italian Ministry of Culture and Artistic Heritage. Over the next three years, we conducted archaeological fieldwork, surveys, and research across Latium, Tuscany, and Calabria.

Turkey holds immense archaeological significance due to its strategic location at the crossroads of ancient civilizations. ProMare partnered with Dokuz Eylül University’s Institute of Marine Sciences and Technology (supported by Turkey’s Ministry of Culture) comprising archaeologists, conservators, historians, geophysicists, and marine biologists.

During a deepwater survey aboard the NR1 in the summer of 2001, between our survey areas in Greece and Italy, Promare discovered a deepwater shipwreck. Dating to no later than the 4th century AD, this well preserved shipwreck was discovered buried in the silt of the Ionian sea floor. Click here to access more information about this project. 


The Greek-Norwegian Deepwater Archaeological Survey, conducted collaboratively by EEA, NTNU, NIA, and ProMare, aimed to test affordable remote sensing techniques for identifying marine cultural artifacts below 50 meters. The project successfully discovered several previously unknown shipwrecks during its research efforts. Click here for details. 


In July 2001, ProMare, in collaboration with INA and the Malta National Museum of Archaeology, conducted an ROV survey in Malta. Previous shallow-water investigations yielded no shipwrecks, prompting a deep-water survey. The survey discovered a scatter of hundreds of 3rd-century BC amphoras outside Xlendi harbor on Gozo, shedding light on ancient trade routes. For more information and publications click here.
