Hi Everyone,

As you can see, our eLearning site has been upgraded and we hope you like the new user friendly layout.
The courses are still the same, so you can pick up where you left off. But hopefully you can find it easier to navigate around the site. Have a look at the new calendar feature which will be kept up to date with practical courses in the UK and overseas that you can take when you've completed your eLearning.

As always, if you have any questions, just contact us at nas@nauticalarchaeologysociety.org

Available courses

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.

The eLearning Intertidal & Terrestrial Archaeology course allows you to use and build upon your newfound knowledge gained from the eLearning Introduction to Maritime Archaeology course. We will walk you through an intertidal or dry archaeological project from the planning phase through to carrying out a field survey and publishing the results. This course will introduce the processes involved in taking a project from conception through documentary research and planning to publication and archiving.

This course is made up of 4 principle lessons that look at many of the different stages of an archaeological project or investigation.  

The Intertidal and Terrestrial Archaeology course is also matched against the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Archaeological Practice which means that the knowledge and practical skills that you are learning are those actually used and needed by professional archaeologists.

This theory course and accompanying Surveyor Day is the second and final component of the NAS Foundation qualification. Once you have achieved the NAS Foundation qualification, you can work towards you NAS Certificate by attending courses in the NAS Education Programme.

The NAS Underwater Archaeology course allows you to use and build upon your newfound knowledge gained from the eLearning Introduction to Maritime Archaeology course. We will walk you through an underwater archaeological project from the planning phase through to carrying out a field survey and publishing the results. This course will introduce the processes involved in taking a project from conception through documentary research and planning to publication and archiving. You can use the knowledge from this course to take part in fieldwork on site with the Surveyor Day.

This course is made up of 4 principle lessons that look at many of the different stages of an archaeological project or investigation.  

This theory course and accompanying Surveyor Day(s) is the second and final component of the NAS Foundation qualification. Once you have achieved the NAS Foundation qualification, you can work towards you NAS Certificate by attending courses in the NAS Education Programme.

This course allows you to complete both the Introduction to Maritime Archaeology course and the Intertidal and Terrestrial Archaeology course, without having to register separately for each course.

These theory elements are accompanied by the Recorder and Surveyor Skills Days.
