The Maddalena Archipelago Maritime Target Survey: a Collaborative Effort Towards the Enhancement of Maritime Cultural Heritage

Summary

Between the 1950s and 1960s, the Maddalena Archipelago (NE Sardinia, Italy) located within the maritime routes of the Strait of Bonifacio was been an important laboratory for testing underwater archaeological methodologies. Subsequently, the area had never been systematically investigated. Our survey project has attempted to verify the information derived from archival research and local community reports through the employment of target dives. In this context the value of the research, undertaken through the support and collaboration of various institutions, resides in the location and documentation of a series of sites dating from the 2nd Century B.C. to the present day. This paper aims to present the data acquired via the survey and to highlight the potential embedded in a holistic approach, in terms of involved stakeholders and the variety of investigated sites, directed towards a sound historical reconstruction, and public interpretation, of in situ maritime cultural heritage.
