Underwater Cultural Heritage

With a view to preventing treasure hunters from looting wrecks or sunken archaeological sites, UNESCO adopted the Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage in 2001. This instrument aims to preserve in situ all remains of human existence submerged for at least one-hundred years. During a conference held in Paris on 23 November 2007, international experts will examine the issues surrounding this relatively young discipline.
