Research on the shipwreck material naturally began as soon as the first item was brought to the surface, but with the completion of the fieldwork in the fall of 1969, a proper study of the collection could begin in earnest. Based at the nearby Manifold Mansion, Michael Katzev and his team were able work year-round on the collection. Following the events in 1974, this research continued elsewhere, generating the first of three recreations of the ship, named Kyrenia II. After the opening of the Green Line on Cyprus in 2003, however, research resumed on the island, focusing on the completion of the publication by 2015.
