The ‘International Congresses on Underwater Archaeology’ have become an important part of the programme to exchange information and experience in this important and still growing branch of archaeology. The proceedings of the first three conferences (in Sassnitz, Germany; Zurich and London) have been published; and that of the fourth, held in Zadar, Croatia, and the fifth, held in Cartagena, Spain, is under way.
It is important that young archaeologists from the countries which Honor Frost regarded as a priority should have the opportunity to attend IKUWA6, but the costs, particularly of travel, are likely to make this impossible unless bursaries are offered.
Preferences will be given to students from Cyprus, Lebanon and Syria but other applicants from the region may be considered depending on demand. See here for more details.
