This project was started in 2010, aiming at collecting, identifying and locating ancient ports and harbours. It led to an extensive catalogue including thousands of places. Much attention was also devoted from the onset to structural aspects as described by Vitruvius, and as resulting from modern coastal engineering such as design waves and harbour silting-up. Additional attention was devoted to ancient ships and sailing, as they define the harbour needs.
