Expedition Background

Our team has been studying archaeological remains of submerged and intertidal shipwrecks for several years. We have worked in the Southernmost part of continental Patagonia, as well as in Tierra del Fuego. We are now beginning to incorporate modern technologies which allow to optimize the recording of sites providing good quality video and photography. These type of visual images are very useful not only for scientific purposes but also for public outreach. We therefore expect to reach wider audiences and increase the public engagement in the valorization and preservation of our maritime past.
