My thesis aims to reconstruct the maritime cultural landscape of the island of Crete through the study of available coastal and underwater archaeological remains such as harbours, ports, and shipwrecks. The study of such sites will highlight the importance of the environment of the coastal seascape in transforming the economic, social, and political framework of Crete during the Imperial period. The study focuses on the analysis and interpretation of changes that took place on the coastal landscape and harbours of Crete during the transition from the Hellenistic to the Roman period.
