This capstone explores reinforcing in situ public access to viewing underwater sites in Greece through the simple method of snorkeling and swimming with goggles. Underwater sites found in shallow waters (coastal areas) are proposed as the targeted places for the project plan to develop. In what follows, the reader will find a short summary of my work and research on this topic. In Chapter 1, I introduce the subject and discuss its importance in terms of raising public awareness about the value and significance of underwater archaeological heritage. In Chapter 2, I synthesize some of my research into suggested steps of making more organized efforts to promote the concerned heritage in a more effective way. This is followed by a short chapter on evaluation as well as a conclusions on other information that is important for this subject. I have created in Appendix A an annotated bibliography that consists of written sources I conducted for this project during the Summer of 2020. In Appendix B, I have a selected list of existing underwater sites in other nations. In Appendix C, I took a map of Greece and noted a few coastal places rich in underwater cultural heritage in shallow waters (maximum six metres). My hope is that this capstone will encourage authorities to promote the underwater cultural heritage and the public to get connected to it learning and appreciating Greece’s culture, history, archaeology and identity.
