The underwater filming of the archaeological excavation at Dokos island,carried out by the Hellenic Institute of Marine Archaeology from 1989 to 1992 under the direction of the archaeologist George Papathanasopoulos was the first full scale excavation of an ancient wreck in Greece which also employed the most up-to-date technological methods of the time. The underwater site of Dokos is the most valuable tangible evidence for navigation, sea trade, technology and the economy in the Aegean during the late 3rd millennium BC.
