Photogrammetric models of  shipwrecks from Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project (Black Sea MAP), the first on going expedition mapping submerged ancient deep water landscapes in the Black Sea. During the expedition, members of MAP discovered more than 40 shipwrecks, from the Ottoman and Byzantine Empires, remarkably preserved due to the anoxic conditions (absence of oxygen) of the Black Sea below 150m.
