Underwater archaeological maps of Menorca

Since 1996, Friends of the Museu de Menorca, with scientific backing from the Museu de Menorca and financial support from the Island Council of Menorca's Department of Culture, has been developing underwater archaeological maps for Menorca's coast.

The objectives of this effort include: the preparation of an underwater archaeological map, the protection and conservation of underwater sites, as well as their scientific study, and the dissemination of said underwater heritage through scientific or informative publications, conferences and collaboration with scuba diving centres.

Since 2010, the project has received support from the Club Nàutic de Ciutadella, and in 2011, the project was included in the “National Plan for the Protection of Underwater Cultural Heritage” of the Spanish Ministry of Culture.
