The course will cover methods and practice of archaeological research, survey and documentation of historic shipwreck(s) and maritime site(s) on the shores north of Boston. In addition to methodological training and academic lectures, participants will get valuable experience with all aspects of fieldwork in a dynamic environment on the seashore.
