New Underwater and Nautical Archaeology Program at the University of Cadiz

The University of Cadiz has established a comprehensive programme with graduate, Masters and PhD degrees focused exclusively on nautical and underwater archeology. It is the first time that a university offers a cross-specialized education programme -in Spanish- for the research, preservation and protection of the underwater cultural heritage, in line with the principles of safeguarding, capacity-building and researching advocated by UNESCO in its 2001 Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage.

Maritime Archaeology Data Archive

I have just advertised a new fellowship on the ForSEAdiscovery Project. I am looking for an early stage researcher who has completed their masters in the last 4 years, has not spent more than 12 months in the last 3 years in the UK, and would be interested in spending 18 months developing the digital data archives for the project. The successful candidate would not be enrolled on a PhD program – this should be seen as a good career development opportunity for an early stage, pre-doctoral researcher.

I am looking to fill the post very soon in May so the call is very short. Please bring this to the attention of any potentially suitable former students, colleagues etc.

Further details are advertised on the Euraxess website: http://ec.europa.eu/euraxess/index.cfm/jobs/jobDetails/34071847

Candidates should also download the application form, job description and person specification at http://www.uwtsd.ac.uk/research/phd-study/phd-scholarships-in-nautical-archaeology-and-shipbuilding/

Many thanks for your help



How would you recover the CSS Georgia?

Now is your opportunity to tell the US Army Corps of Engineers how you would do it.

To assist USACE in planning how this work may be performed, this Request for Information (RFI) is being issued to seek input from industry regarding two courses of action (COA) for removing the casemate sections and artifacts from their current locations.

COA 1 will address how to efficiently recover the two large casemate sections intact, archaeologically document each section, recover all cultural materials that reside underneath those sections and materials that are immediately adjacent to the casemates, and reburial of the west casemate and selected materials in a pre-determined location in Back River (approximately 1.5 miles from the wreck site).

COA 2 will address efficient removal of the casemate sections without archaeological documentation, recovery of cultural materials that reside underneath those sections and are immediately adjacent to the casemates, and reburial of both casemates and selected materials in a pre-determined location in Back River.

Request for Information is due: April 12
