Ships: Research, Recording and Reconstruction

Dear all,

External applications are now open for our popular topic Ships: Research, Recording and Reconstruction, scheduled from 17-21 September 2018.

This topic provides students with the theoretical and practical training necessary for researching ships and ship construction. Students will develop an in-depth knowledge of recording, representing and interpreting ship construction. Students should expect to learn nautical terminology, the basic components of a ship and activities aboard, principles of ship construction and rigging, procedures for taking and drafting ship lines and construction plans, hull analysis, procedures for graphic representation of hulls and principles of reconstructing ships.  This topic is challenging, demanding and hands-on; students are expected to participate fully in problem-solving exercises.


This topic will be taught in the intensive mode (one week) and SCUBA diving qualifications are not required for participation.

The course is open to non-Flinders student for the cost of tuition. Credit for the course may be applied to home universities. This is also an excellent opportunity for current practicing professionals interested in staff development training. For more details and to apply to the topic please see:

Lake Champlain Maritime Museum

VT Youth Development Corps members promote hope, justice, & wellbeing for all VT youth. Their service supports innovative initiatives at nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and schools that foster positive youth development and build resilience in youth, helping them avoid opioid use and other unhealthy behaviors. The Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s core mission is to discover, preserve, and share the maritime heritage of the Lake Champlain region’s past, present, and future.

For 30 years, we have brought the stories of Lake Champlain to life through world-class archaeological research, exhibits, replica vessels, hands-on traditional skills, educational programs, recreational adventures, and on- and under-water exploration. The Museum serves everyone, with a focus on youth. Many area schools come for field trips, we run an extensive summer camp program, and we lead afterschool programs for elementary and middle school students focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Our rowing program serves over 600 students and 300 adults. In addition, we have a semester-long wooden boat building program which provides opportunities for youth with developmental challenges. We also have a maritime research institute conducting original field work and research. The AmeriCorps members serve a key role in promoting our mission to area youth through many programming opportunities. These include developing and presenting topics to school field trip groups, designing curricula, teaching in afterschool programs, assisting with our boat building program for youth with developmental challenges, assisting with the school team rowing programs, and leading activities in our camps. Members are fundamental in designing and growing our programs for youth. The members enhance students’ love of learning, confidence, skills, and dreams for their future.

Maritime Cultural Heritage

Queen’s University Belfast
School of Natural and Built Environment
PERICLES project

Research Fellow in maritime cultural heritage:

Under the guidance of Dr Wesley Flannery you will be joining a team of 8 others working on coastal heritage governance issues. Specifically, you will contribute to the exciting PERICLES project comprising a strong interdisciplinary consortium across seven European states encompassing over 15 different disciplines.

Cultural heritage is at risk through diverse drivers, such as climate change, non-cultural heritage sensitive economic and spatial development (e.g. mass tourism), and demographic change (e.g. decline and aging in rural areas and lack of recruitment to sectors important to coastal and maritime cultural heritage such as inshore fisheries).

This project aims to develop effective mitigation options to ensure cultural heritage preservation by mapping, characterising and assessing the risks facing cultural heritage.
