Since 2009, we have discovered numerous ancient shipwrecks around Knidos, Turkey, a testament to the heavy traffic in ancient times. This pilot project will test the capabilities of an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) in this area to see if we can obtain the same results with a less expensive and more efficient method of survey.
