We aim to conduct an in-depth exploration of the rugged and rocky coastline of the Phoenix territory. We expect to find traces of various installations connected to commercial, military, funerary, and ritual activities such as harbors, defensive systems, tombs, and cult places. Our survey will be conducted both on land and underwater with the help of marine geology and geomorphological analyses. We will document and preserve the archaeological heritage on the shores within the official research area, which is heavily under threatened by human activities.
