Submerged Prehistoric Landscapes 2018

Posted in Uncategorized by underwaterarchaeologyjobs on March 19, 2018



Following the success of the University of Geneva Terra Submersa expedition in 2014, the summer school offers an intensive course on a new, multidisciplinary scientific field: Continental Shelf Prehistoric Research (CSPR).

The course aims at educating postgraduate students and young scientists to move across the boundaries of marine geosciences and archaeology, in order to shed light on the interaction between our ancestors with the dynamically changing environment.

Practically, the summer school will take place in Porto Cheli (Greece), and include field trips to the prehistoric site of Franchthi Cave and surrounding area. Its objective is to give the opportunity for young archaeologists and geoscientists to:

  • Learn about marine geophysical (multibeam, side scan sonar, sub bottom 
profiler), marine geological methodologies as well as data acquisition, post-processing and interpretation
  • Understand paleoclimate and sea-level changes and their interaction with isostatic and tectonic
vertical movements
  • Link climate, sea level and environmental changes to the archaeology of people who 
lived on and migrated across the continental shelf
  • Familiarize with key themes in coastal prehistory

Summer Field School in Underwater Archaeology

Posted in Uncategorized by underwaterarchaeologyjobs on March 14, 2018


The St. Eustatius Center for Archaeological Research (SECAR) is organizing an underwater archaeological field school from July 26 – August 9, 2018 on St. Eustatius in the Dutch Caribbean.

St. Eustatius, a tiny island in the northeastern Caribbean, was the busiest port in the Americas in the late eighteenth century and played an instrumental role in supplying arms and ammunition to the rebels during the Revolutionary War. The island is believed to have the densest concentration of archaeological sites of any area of comparable size in the New World, and is dotted with the remains of sugar plantations, cemeteries, old warehouses, fortifications, and marine structures. The waters surrounding the island are home to an estimated 200 shipwreck sites.

The field school will comprise a two-week program packed with adventure and exploration. The focus will be on documenting submerged archaeological remains and learning surveying and documenting techniques such as photogrammetry (3D recording) and underwater photography, drawing underwater sites, geophysical surveying techinques, recording cannons and anchors, etc. This means we will be visiting some regular dive sites, but also sites that no one else has ever seen before.

In addition to the practical applications, there will be presentations on the history of St. Eustatius and shipwrecks, artifact workshops, excursions and hikes on our beautiful dormant volcano and archaeological sites on the island.

Participants are required to be certified scuba divers (PADI Open Water Diver or equivalent certification from another agency). Scuba diving courses can also be taken on the island prior to the start of the field school (not included in the price). Scubaqua Dive Center is our local partner when it comes to all diving activities.

The island of St. Eustatius is relatively quiet and undeveloped. There are no large resorts, casinos, night clubs, or crowds of tourists. Instead, the island is a hidden gem with friendly people, little to no crime, beautiful national parks, and a laid-back atmosphere. Getting to St. Eustatius is easy. There are several direct flights into St. Maarten (airport code SXM) from US and European cities. From St. Maarten, take a short 18-minute flight to St. Eustatius (airport code EUX) with Winair.

Period(s) of Occupation: Colonial period, 17th and 18th centuries
