The National Museum of Underwater Archaeology and National Centre of Sub-Aquatic Archaeological Research were established in 1980. They implement an intensive programme of systematic coastal surveys as well as professional diving and sub-aquatic archaeology courses. They also created the Water Saturated Archaeological Wood Laboratory and have begun the Museum Collections Monographs Catalogues.
The ARQUA is the institution responsible for informing citizens about Spanish sub-aquatic cultural heritage and promoting its conservation and consequently, its growth for their use and enjoyment. Its aims are the study, assessment, research, preservation, dissemination and protection of Spanish sub-aquatic cultural heritage. It is also the headquarters of the Permanent Observatory of the National Protection Plan for Sub-Aquatic Archaeological Heritage.
The archaeology laboratory aims to be a meeting point for technicians who carry out their professional activities in the field of sub-aquatic archaeology. Through them, it aims to collaborate in the normalisation of Spanish sub-aquatic archaeology and facilitate activities conducted by archaeologists, restorers, photographers, surveyors and technicians in general who work in the realm of sub-aquatic cultural heritage.
