News and events from 2016

  • Very exciting news from Antikythera in Greece, where we conducted mapping with the AUV Sirius in 2014 and 2015. Archaeologists have announced the discovery of 2000 year old bones on the site. The map generated by our AUV is featured in this article and shows the location of some of the artefacts recovered from the site. Kudos to the whole team involved in supporting this work, and in particular Oscar Pizarro and Christian Lees who helped make it all happen. [September 19th, 2016]
