The Department of World Archaeology of the Faculty of Archaeology is looking for a

PhD candidate for the project ‘The Scheurrak SO1 Shipwreck and the Maritime-Cultural Landscape of the Early Modern Netherlands, 1550-1650’ 

Project description
The PhD candidate will carry out research within the framework of the research programme ‘The Scheurrak SO1 shipwreck in the maritime-cultural landscape of the early modern Netherlands, 1550-1650’. This interdisciplinary programme contains two PhD projects, and is a cooperation between the Institute for History (Faculty of Humanities) and the Faculty of Archaeology. The programme investigates what one extraordinarily well-preserved shipwreck, excavated between 1989 and 1997, can tell us about the shipping and shipbuilding industries of the early modern Netherlands, and the material culture of the Baltic trade in the period between 1550 and 1650.

The programme will contribute to a better understanding of the broader notion of the maritime-cultural landscape of the early modern Netherlands, and is financed by the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed). See for more information the website(only available in Dutch).
