This paper presents a new research line recently started by our team in
the context of semi-autonomous underwater robotic intervention applied to the
archaeological domain. This new research line is supported by the Spanish Ministry
and represents an extension of previous developed work through different national
and international projects. The robotic system under development will assist the
archaeologist in the detailed work of monitoring, characterization, study, reconstruction
and preservation of archaeological sites, always in accordance with the
continuous supervision of the human expert.
