Maritime Archaeology

This course focuses on the principles of maritime archaeology of all periods within the broader international context and is delivered with the collaboration of renowned professionals from different parts of the world. With climate change creating long term alterations in the marine environment, this will be the 1st taught maritime archaeology course internationally to include units that address this issue. Students will have the opportunity to plan, monitor, record and report on an element of an archaeological field project, in which students have taken a responsible role using the methods, practices and skills typically used within professional archaeological projects and research. Prior to undertaking the fieldwork, students will gain an understanding of how to plan field projects and produce an appropriate project design, including health and safety and budgeting aspects. Having completed a supervisory field project, students will produce a report to industry standards. A minimum of 4 weeks experience of working on an archaeological field project would normally be expected to undertake this unit.
