Researchers from various academic and professional backgrounds are working together to better understand submerged prehistoric landscapes and their significance through a four-year EU-funded research network project entitled Submerged Prehistoric Archaeology and Landscapes of the Continental Shelf.

Eight project partners from six EU countries recently travelled to Malta to join representatives from the University’s Department of Classics and Archaeology to dive to some unique submerged geological features.

The project also seeks to provide training opportunities for young researchers, with the latest workshop being organised in Malta on modern underwater recording techniques. Practical sessions and lectures were delivered by both visiting and local experts in this field. Site visits to Għar Dalam, Ħagar Qim and Mnajdra complemented the workshop.
