The Introduction to Maritime Archaeology course introduces you to the discipline of maritime archaeology taking you from the basic question ‘What is Archaeology’ through to the range of sites we might study, dating techniques and recording methods to get you started recording sites.
This course doesn’t require any prior knowledge, so it doesn’t matter if you are completely new to the subject. If you have already completed your Recorder Day, then the information covered will complement the practical skills you have learnt.
This course is made up of 5 principle lessons that will introduce you to the subject of maritime archaeology. As well as an insight into the basic principles by none other than Time Team’s Phil Harding, the course also introduces you to the range of sites which can be covered – and it will become clear that it is not just about shipwrecks and it is certainly not all underwater.
This theory course and accompanying Recorder Day is the first component of the NAS Foundation qualification, which you can work towards as a NAS member by attending courses in the NAS Education Programme.
