2. MARINE ARCHAEOLOGY. Discovery and characterization of underwater cultural
heritage representing past marine-based economic activities or early human occupation to inform decisions on preservation and seabed use, and to identify sources of potential environmental impacts. Marine archaeology proposals can be conducted in any water depth.

3. TECHNOLOGY. Application of new or novel use of existing ocean technologies or
innovative methods that increase the scope and efficiency of acquiring ocean exploration data and improve usability of and access to ocean exploration data. Proposed technologies must be applicable to water depths of 200 m or greater, though testing in shallower water or lab-based test facilities will be supported.

Free Nautical Archaeology Webinar

https://www.nauticalarchaeologysociety.org/ijna-webinar

The second live IJNA Webinar will take place on Wednesday 24th April 2019, at 14:00 (New York and Fort de France), 19:00 (London) 20:00 (Paris).

When we think about nautical archaeology, our minds often jump to images of shipwrecks out to sea or along rocky coasts, as a result of misfortune or misadventure. But the remains that nautical archaeologists’ study in harbours, rivers, and estuaries have often been purposefully placed or abandoned, rather than arriving as a result of a catastrophe.

So other than wrecking at sea or sinking in battle, how does a ship become an archaeological deposit? Are there patterns in these rich assemblages of vessels that that can increase our knowledge of maritime activities and trade practices?
