Access to the area is restricted as it is part of the British Akrotiri Air Base and is close to military installations.

The confirmation of the discovery of the shipwreck came as part of a research in the context of the Ancient Akrotiri Project, an ongoing collaborative research project on the peninsula conducted since 2015 and led by the University of Leicester, with the participation of the Universities of Cyprus and Athens.

Marine archeologists also found an Aswan granite column in the middle of the wreck which is believed to belong to the sunken vessel.

An extensive survey of the area revealed almost 800 shoulders and rims of amphorae, denoting that the vessel was a rather big one.

The word’s currently oldest known shipbuilding site is situated just of the coast England, where it was drowned by rising waters following the end of the last glacial maximum.

The site dates back to the Mesolithic and apparently consist of a series of settlements with remains demonstrating techniques of working wood and building boats not thought to have been developed until some centuries later. It includes some oldest known string, and remains of grain, thought to be einkorn, some two millennia before it was thought it was in Britain.
