The City Beneath The Waves – Discovered over 40 years ago just off the coast of Greece, Pavlopetri is the oldest submerged city in the world. Now, BBC Two is to follow the first team of experts to have been given permission to excavate the site, eager to discover exactly what lies beneath the waves.
The team, led by underwater archaeologist Dr Jon Henderson, will use the latest in cutting-edge science and technology to prise age-old secrets from the complex of streets and stone buildings that lie less than five metres below the surface.
State-of-the-art CGI will help to raise these secrets from the seabed revealing, for the first time in 3,500 years, how the mighty city of Pavlopetri once looked and operated.
